As of 10pm Friday, crime scene investigators were still on the scene of a South Lubbock neighborhood where a double homicide occurred earlier in the day.
The medical examiner's office removed the bodies of 73-year-old Wanda Turner and her daughter, 52-year-old Vicki Logan, around 9:30pm. Both were found dead just after 2pm inside Turner's home at 2711 80th Street. Logan lived next door to her mother and police are treating both as crime scenes.
Lieutenant Roy Bassett says two co-workers came by Logan's house to check on her when she did not show up at work. Logan's son answered the door and took the people to his grandmother's house. That's when police say the young man opened the garage door and was acting strange toward the co-workers before entering the grandmothers house.
"What we're hearing is that he was very distraught saying something about 'they're dead, they're dead'. I don't know the exact words," said Lt. Bassett.
The co-workers then called police. "How did the boy know they were dead? That's one of the things we're talking to him about," said Lt. Bassett. Police took Logan's son to the police station for questioning. Meanwhile, neighbors can't believe this happened. "She was a divorcee and trying to work. He's such a nice looking teenager, but I've known him since he was a little kid," said neighbor Florene McAllister.
Again, investigators are still questioning Logan's son. A suspect has not yet been named and information on how the women died has not been released. NewsChannel 11 will follow the investigation and bring details as they become available.
