A 17-year-old Texas girl has died after she was allegedly stabbed by her twin brother while their parents were sleeping early Wednesday, authorities said.
The girl, whose identity has not been released, was discovered suffering from stabbing wounds in her bedroom around 4:45 a.m. at her home north of Katy, news station KTRK reported.
When authorities arrived, they found her brother giving CPR to the girl, who was pronounced dead at the scene, the outlet reported.
It’s not clear what led to the stabbing.
Harris County Sgt. Greg Pinkins said the brother “made no statements when deputies arrived,” though they believe he was the one who called 911, news station KHOU reported.
Officers took the brother into custody and have recovered the knife that they believe was used, the outlets reported.
Authorities have not released the identity of the twin brother.
The family has refused to allow deputies inside to search the rest of the property for evidence, so authorities are working on obtaining a search warrant, KTRK reported.
