HOUSTON (AP) - Houston police are investigating the deaths of an Episcopal priest, his wife and 5-year-old son whose bodies were found inside their apartment earlier this week.

The Episcopal Diocese of Texas has confirmed the deceased are the Rev. Israel Ahimbisibwe; his wife, Dorcus; and their son, Israel Ahimbisibwe Jr. The elder Ahimbisibwe served as Vicar of Redeemer at the Church of the Redeemer.

Police say concerned church members contacted authorities after the family didn’t show up to church Sunday and couldn’t be reached Monday. They say there were no signs of forced entry into their apartment.

Detectives didn’t say how long how the bodies had been inside the apartment or offer a motive into the killings.

Further details haven’t been released.
