We are fully cooperating with the Police Department during their investigation and will assist them in any way we can.

"Detectives with the Major Crimes Division have been able to confirm that this family arrived at the San Luis Resort and checked in around 7 p.m. last night (Sunday)", Galveston Police Captain Joshua Schirard told the news station. Police have no immediate word on a motive for the killings and plan to speak with more family members and friends Tuesday to see if there were any signs leading up the murder. CNN reported that there are roughly 500 instances a year in which a parent murders his or her child; 72 percent of those victims are 6 years old or younger, and about 43 percent of the murderers in these cases are mothers. While the two adults seemed to be dead, the two young boys were pronounced as unresponsive but alive. They were from Baytown about 35 miles north of Galveston. The family lived in Baytown, Texas, which is just outside of Houston.

Goose Creek ISD confirmed the children attended classes at Victoria Walker Elementary School.
