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.
