It is believed Gloria Williams and Brian Coulter got matching 'WARRIOR' tattoos shortly after Coulter killed eight-year-old Kendrick Lee in Houston, Texas. New social media footage reveals the couple showing off their tattoos in 2021, after Lee was killed in November 2020. The update is just the latest to the case that has been dubbed Houston's 'House of Horrors'.

As we previously reported, Williams and Coulter killed Lee and left Williams' other three children to fend for themselves in a Houston apartment. They were arrested and charged on October 25, a day after the eldest child called 911 to complain. Police were then greeted with a gruesome scene - where the three children, aged 15, 10, and 7 were found malnourished and living with the decomposing body of Lee.

The shocking discovery has quickly put the spotlight on the couple, who lived just 15 minutes away but rarely visited the kids. The three survived for over a year on the generosity of their neighbors, none of whom had any clue about the severity of the situation. Analysis of their social media profiles now reveals more about the couple, and just how little they cared for the three children.

Instagram reveals tattoos, gifts

In an April 2021 Instagram photo, Williams showed off her tattoo which she got on her hand. Coulter's tattoo, which he got on his neck, can be seen in a video he posted on August 4. An Instagram video uploaded in February does not show the tattoo, so it appears he got it around the same time as Williams. It is believed Lee was killed in November 2020, so the tattoos were done around five months after his death.

The tattoo is still visible on Coulter in his mugshot, released by the Harris County Sheriff's Office after his arrest. It is believed Coulter punched and kicked Lee to death, then hid his body in a closet in the apartment. He has now been charged with murder but could face additional charges as police noted more details are uncovered. The seven-year-old is believed to have broken bones on his face, which so far has not been attributed to Coulter. The cause is likely to be revealed in the coming days, as the children are interviewed by police.

The tattoos aren't the only thing Instagram has revealed. It also appears Coulter gave Williams a large number of gifts for Valentine's Day. An Instagram post reveals she got dozens of items of Zales jewelry, including watches, pendants, and rings. "My husband bought this for me for valentines day i love him very much everything is real," she captioned her photo. It also appears Williams got her boyfriend a large silver ring and chain, which he showed off in a video.

Williams is facing a string of charges including injury to a child by omission, failure to provide medical care, and failure to provide adequate supervision. She has also been charged with tampering with evidence because police believe she may have moved Lee's corpse. On October 27, a judge set bond for Williams at $900,000, and she is ordered not to have any contact with minors, including her own children and Coulter. Coulter meanwhile, did not appear at his arraignment because he is being evaluated at a mental health unit. The judge set bond at $1 million for Williams, with the same conditions as that for Williams.

Initial statements reveal Williams was aware Coulter killed Lee, but she did not alert police because he told her not to, and she feared CPS would take her children away. Among other things, police are also trying to identify the father of the children. Preliminary investigations revealed that the kids all have different fathers, with one being deceased, and another not having any contact.
