Update: The Rev. Israel Ahimbisibwe, wife Dorcus, and son Israel Junior found dead

Houston police have stated that the family members were found dead with signs of trauma in their Houston apartment.

ABC 13 reported earlier, having received confirmation from the Diocese of Texas that the address is where Israel Ahimbisibwe, a local priest, lived with wife Dorcus and  youngest son, Israel Junior.

After not seeing the family in church, parishioners visited the home, and called the police when no one answered. Click2Houston quotes Diocesan Bishop Andrew Doyle.

From the article:

“This is a horrific and awful tragedy,” said Bishop C. Andrew Doyle, Bishop of Texas, “We are in touch with the police and Israel’s family here in Houston. Please keep the Ahimbisibwe and Redeemer families in your prayers.”

Our prayers are with Redeemer Episcopal Church in Houston and the Ahimbisibwe family.

For more information and future updates, ABC 13 is reporting online.

An early statement from the Diocese of Texas is here.
