A mother and daughter was found murdered in northwest Harris County on Thursday.  Vonda Gideon, 52, and Margaret Gideon, 75, were both found dead and had been dead for at least a week. 

According to police the women had trauma to their bodies, but were so badly decomposed, authorities could not immediately determine what caused their deaths.  The younger Ms. Gideon was a realtor and a popular member of the community. 

A person of interest in the case is Vonda Gideon’s brother, Mark Gideon, 55, the Harris County Sherriff’s office said there has been a history of violence and said patrol units had been out to the Kirkleigh Street house twice this month. 

Local reports are saying Mark Gideon was last seen driving Vonda’s pickup truck on Wednesday night.    Police are asking anyone who has any information about Marks whereabouts to contact the Harris County Sheriff's Office.
