Detectives investigating suspicious death from Sunday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Detectives are investigating a suspicious death that occurred in the 3000 block of East 3rd St. on Sunday.

48-year-old Bonnie Huey says she and her grandson returned home from a weekend trip to find a man dead in her kitchen.

"We seen something on the floor, we didn't know what it was. We thought the ceiling had broke in. We looked up and nothing was there so we look back down and that's when I realized that it was blood because my grandson hit the light switch," Huey said.

But Huey says as she kept walking, she found a very unwanted surprise. 

"I went around the corner where the back door was open and I seen somebody's feet. And that's all I seen. And I just wanted me and my baby out of here because we didn't know what was going on. We had just made it home and so I got us outside and called 911," Huey said.

Huey told authorities she recognized the man as a neighbor who would sometimes help her around the house, but said she had no idea why he was in her house or how he got in.

Police have identified the man as 51-year-old Robert Lowery. They say there were bullet wounds in his thigh.

Lubbock Police Sgt. Jason Lewis says they are not looking at this as a crime at this time.

"It's not a homicide or a suicide or anything. We haven't labeled it anything. It's just an investigation of a death until we get some questions answered," Lewis said.

Lewis says many of these questions won't be answered until the autopsy is complete.
