A 20-year-old Texas man who attempted to flee to California after allegedly stabbing his mother and sister to death was detained Saturday before he could board a flight.

Officers responded to a "disturbance with weapons" call at a residence in the 1800 block of Nueces Drive in Allen just before 9:15 a.m. ET and discovered the bodies of Isil Borat, 51, and Burcu Hezar, 17, WFAA-TV reported, citing Allen Police Department. Police determined Borat's son, Burak Hezar, as the suspect in the double murder and launched a manhunt for him.

Burcu and Burak's stepfather, Borat's husband, reportedly called the police after he got home and sensed something amiss. Burak was still at the home when his stepfather arrived at the residence.

Police Sgt. Allen. John Felty said Burak was apparently attempting to visit his biological father in San Francisco but suddenly decided to "give up the idea of ​​getting on the plane" and approached several car rental services at the airport to hire a car but was unable to do so, The US Express-News reported.

Burak was arrested from somewhere on the airport property. "We are very grateful that DFW Airport Police were able to locate and take him into custody without incident," The US Express News quoted Felty, as saying.

Police said that Burak used a knife to stab the victims. He was facing two counts of the capital murder charge and was being held at the Collin County jail, WFAA-TV reported. His bail is reportedly set at $ 2 million.

The motive for the homicides wasn’t clear. It was also not clear if the knife was recovered from the crime scene.
