Investigators said the couple was ambushed at their home at the Northgate Forest subdivision last Thursday. Earlier this week, the sheriff’s office released surveillance video of two men who were seen walking in that area around that time.
In the video, two men are seen arriving in a black 2007 to 2014 Lincoln Navigator. The driver parks the vehicle in the turnaround, and then both men can be seen walking up the street before crawling under the gate.

Authorities said they received numerous tips as a result of media coverage, which led investigators to the Lincoln Navigator the suspects were seen in near the victims’ home.
Two suspects were caught on surveillance video arriving at the subdivision Thursday, parking a Lincoln Navigator near the gate and then crawling under the gate and into the neighborhood, according to the sheriff’s office.
During a news conference Wednesday, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the Lincoln vehicle did not belong to the suspects and were most likely used in other crimes.
The Lams’ bodies were found inside their home on Saturday after a welfare check call by family.
Deputies believe the Lams were ambushed inside their garage, and then forced inside their home by their killers.
Investigators said the husband and wife were found with their hands and feet bound, and both died from gunshot wounds.
The suspects allegedly fled in the Lams’ car before returning and going into the house a few hours later, authorities said. Over the course of those few days, the suspects likely went back into the house several times, the sheriff’s office said.
The house appeared to be ransacked with firearms and other valuables were missing, the sheriff’s office said.
“I want to thank the Harris County community for helping our dedicated investigators bring justice to the Lam family and get these dangerous criminals off our streets,” said Sheriff Gonzalez. “We join the Lam family in grieving our entire community’s loss.”
