Willie Mae Pakoejoe, 60, And Herman Pakoejoe, 56: Bayou Body Count Nos. 34-35

It was a couple of hours before dawn on Friday along the 5700 block of Munson Lane, not far from Missouri City, when Willie Mae and Herman Pakoejoe's granddaughter awoke to the crack of gunfire.

She pulled the covers back, got out of bed, and went to her grandparents room to see what had happened. That's when, police say, she found them both lying on the floor, dead.

The girl quickly told relatives living nearby, who then called the police. When officers arrived, they determined that Herman Pakoejoe, 56, had shot his wife, Willie Mae, 60, and then turned the weapon on himself and pulled the trigger.
