Fresno County Sheriff’s homicide detectives have developed a possible lead in an unsolved double murder case involving a former Kingsburg principal and her mother.

On Dec. 11, 2017, Jennifer DuPras, 55, and Cynthia Houk, 88, were found shot to death inside Houk’s home located on the 6200 block of north Colonial Avenue in Fresno.

Jennifer Dupras and her mother Cynthia Houk are identified as the victims in a double homicide investigation.

Following the murders, detectives made a request to the public for any surveillance video they may have captured in the area of Bullard, Maroa, Sierra and Palm avenues.

Detectives received calls and later collected multiple videos from residents which were recorded between Dec. 8 and Dec. 11, the Sheriff’s Office said.

On one video, detectives discovered an image of what appears to be a white crew cab pickup truck. Based upon information developed during the investigation, detectives have reason to believe the person driving the truck may have been involved in the homicides, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Anyone with information should call Sheriff’s dispatchers at 559-600-3111, Detective Juan Galindo at 559-600-8215 or Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-7867. Callers to Crime Stoppers will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward. 

No arrests have been made in this case.
