The man who Corpus Christi police say admitted beating two family members to death and critically injuring a third has died.

According to the Nueces County Medical Examiner, 73-year-old Mohammed Sahi died on Sunday at CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital Shoreline of natural causes.

Sahi had been in custody since September 2019 after police found the bodies of his 47-year-old daughter and 18-year-old grandson inside a home on the 6200 hundred block of Denain Drive in the Kings Crossing subdivision.

His 21-year-old grandson was also found inside the home. He was taken to the hospital where he was treated for serious injuries.

Sahi told officers who responded to the scene that he had beaten his family members all with a stick.

A few days after the murders, Sahi appeared in Nueces Co. Judge Jack Pulcher's court and admitted to the murders and brutal attacks.

"I did it," Mohammed Sahi said in English, despite his primary language being Punjabi. "Whatever they're charging me with is correct."

Sahi was charged with one count of capital murder of multiple persons and one count of aggravated assault of a family member.
