The Lewisville Police Department is investigating a murder/suicide connected to a missing persons case.
Latoya Nicka Connor, 38-year-old female, was found deceased inside a house in the 800 block of Pebble Ridge Drive, from a gunshot.
Julious Devol Connor, 45-year-old male, also was found deceased inside the house with a self-inflicted gunshot.
LPD officially opened a missing persons case for Latoya Connor on June 24, after family members came forward to report not having contact with her since June 20.
Latoya and Julious Connor were married in 2019 and were in the process of getting a divorce. Latoya was living in an apartment with her 12-and 14-year-old daughters (unrelated to Julious). On June 20, family members say Latoya told her daughters she was going to the house on Pebble Ridge Drive to collect a check.
Detectives also were in contact with Julious’ adult daughter (from a previous marriage), who told them she had not been able to contact him for several days.
A disturbance call to 9-1-1 by a third party sent LPD officers to the house Sunday morning. After repeated attempts to reach both parties failed, LPD obtained a search warrant. Around 11 p.m. Sunday night, officers made entry to the house and found both bodies in a bedroom. Preliminary investigation shows Julious shot and killed Latoya before shooting himself.
LPD detectives are working with the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office to determine how long the individuals have been deceased.
