KELLER -- Keller police still do not know who shot and killed a Keller man found dead in his Twin Lakes neighborhood home Thursday morning.

Just before midday, the woman who first reported her husband was a victim of a home invasion changed her story. She told police her husband committed suicide. They say she is now telling them she also did her best to clean up afterwards to protect her four year old daughter from finding out.

Police said the victim's wife called 911 just before 5 a.m. and reported a home intruder broke in to the couple's home, struck her, then shot and killed her husband and exiting the back master bedroom door.

Police said, in that same room, near the door, they recovered a 45 calibre automatic believed to belong to the shooting victim. Investigators found a man in his late 40’s shot to death with a single bullet wound to the head. He was laying flat in bed, according to police.

Specially trained police dogs never detected the scent of an intruder and police said they found no sign of a forced entry. They never found any other weapon.

Keller police said they still can't explain who is to blame for this shooting death.

They do know the couple's 4-year-old daughter apparently slept through whatever happened and wasn't harmed.

Not many neighbors know the family involved.

Police say they've been renting the Twin Lakes house and were planning to move soon to another home they just recently purchased a few miles away.
