We've Got A Developing Situation

Late last night at approximately 11:45pm the Wise County Sheriff's Office responded to a welfare concern in the 3800 block of US HWY 287 North (5 miles north of Decatur). While checking the residence Deputy Travis Waddell observed what appeared to be blood on the front porch of the residence. Upon further inspection of the residence, two male bodies were located. WCSO Investigators, as well as the Texas Ranger are still on scene at this time. It appears that there was some sort of struggle between the two men which resulted in their deaths.

Evidence at the scene are leading investigators to work this case at this time as a murder- suicide. Names of the victims are being withheld, pending family notification. Justice of the Peace Terri Johnson has been called to the scene and will be requesting autopsy.
