It's an update to the incident involving a 16 year old who allegedly murdered his mother
Officers arrived to the 4100 block of declaration in South Laredo to find 48-year-old victim Martha Velasco in the kitchen with several stab wounds to the upper body.
Police tell us he is being held at the juvenile detention center.
The United Independent School District is making itself available to any students in need of counseling in the wake of this tragedy.
In a statement released to the media Friday district officials tell us:
“It continues to be a regular school day at United South High School. However, if any student feels the need to see a counselor, they are available just as they are throughout the school year.”
Sources say the boy involved was an ideal student of United South.
A school official confirmed those details and said investigators were on campus asking questions that day.
Still no one knows what caused the tragic incident.
