The FBI and the Texas Rangers have taken the lead in the investigation of the shooting deaths of Kaufman County, Texas, District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, whose bodies were found Saturday night inside their rural Forney, Texas, home.
Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland took no chances after one of his assistant prosecutors was assassinated two months ago. Mr. McLelland said he carried a gun everywhere he went and took extra care when answering the door at his home.
An assistant district attorney was shot and killed Thursday morning near the North Texas county courthouse where he worked, and authorities said they were searching for two suspects.
He said, "It's unnerving for the law enforcement community. It's unnerving to the community at large."
As for whether their deaths were related to Hasse's slaying, Sheriff Byrnes said there was nothing to indicate that "for sure," but he declined to discuss it further during a news conference.
