A Texas couple were discovered bound and fatally shot inside their upscale gated-community residence, located just outside Houston last weekend.

Police found the remains of Bao and Jenny Lam, both 61, on Saturday after their son was concerned and contacted 911 after he hadn’t heard from his parents since last week, the Houston Chronicle reported.

“The residence had been ransacked, a number of firearms and other valuable items were missing,” the sheriff’s office revealed.

Detectives believe the Lams were am ushed when they got home just before 9 p.m. on Thursday. It was not immediately apparent who committed the brutal offense. Investigators were collecting surveillance video from the area on Monday.

The couple’s son, Rich Lam, posted a picture on Facebook of his parents smiling and hugging on Sunday.

“The pain is unimaginable,” Rich Lam said. “There’s no closure. I never got to tell them I love them.”

The Lams’ secluded family residence is located inside a gated-community in Spring, Texas located roughly 24 miles from downtown Houston.
