A 15-year-old boy found his parents dead in their west Houston home on Dec. 11.
"It's hard, but I'm trying to hold myself together for my siblings. There's three and I'm the eldest," Annie Marie Pham said.
There is unbelievable pressure on 20-year-old Annie. Her father, 45-year-old Kenny Pham, shot and killed his wife and Annie's mother, 44-year-old Trang Quach.
Annie said her parents moved from Wichita, Kansas in 2011 and were having marital problems.
"My dad was building up a lot of stress," Annie said. "We expected them to handle things differently, like get a divorce and separate the family. We didn't think it would end like this."
Kenny and his wife were home alone when he made the decision that would leave their four children in pain forever.
Annie and her younger siblings cannot afford to bury their parents. Their bodies remain above ground until Annie and her siblings find a way to bury the troubled couple.
"My siblings are all in school and we don't have any of that income. We were looking at agencies hoping they would help."
