Police: Flower Mound man stabbed mother, killed self

Posted: Updated:

Police in Flower Mound are investigating a murder-suicide involving an adult male and his mother.

It happened Monday in the 1500 block of River Birch Drive, which is in a neighborhood near Stone Creek Park.

Captain Richard Brooks said 31-year-old Eric Wilner used a knife to kill his 57-year-old mother, Deborah Wilner. Then he killed himself with a utility-type razor blade.

The victim's husband called 911. He was home at the time, but he was asleep, Brooks said.

Police said what is believed to be a suicide note was found at the residence.

Some neighbors were shocked to hear about what happened in what they described as a nice neighborhood that backs up to a school and park.
