HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – The adopted father of 7-year-old Troy Khoeler, who was found dead inside a washing machine at his home, spoke out about his’s son’s death Thursday evening.

Jermaine Thomas was seen moments after he was dropped off by a Harris County Pct. 4 Constable deputy after he was questioned. He told KPRC 2′s, Brandon Walker, that he came home after work looking for his wife and found the door was already unlocked.

“Since that…. I came home…just like I’m about to walk in the door right now,” he said. “I don’t have my keys, but I put my key in the door and the door opened. Anything else after that I don’t know.”
