Texas Man, 20, Arrested In Parents’ Deaths

KATY (June 1, 2014) Ryan Walton, 20, has been charged with murder in the shooting deaths of his parents, whose bodies were found in their home in a gated community in Katy.

Walton was arrested Saturday in the Rosenberg area.

He was held without bond Sunday.

The bodies of Michael Walton, 54, and Lynda Walton, 52 were found early Thursday evening at their home, which is valued in tax records at $1.4 million.

Authorities say Ryan Walton, one of the couple's four children, left home three weeks ago but returned.

He was last seen Thursday morning in a video taken at the community's gates driving his mother's vehicle.

Tax records showed that the home where the shooting occurred was valued at $1.4 million.

Nehls says authorities are trying to reach another of the couple’s children, a 20-year-old son.

They're not sure if he's in hiding or whether there's reason to be concerned for his safety.
