Kaufman County, Texas District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, were found with fatal gunshot wounds Saturday — two months after Assistant District Attorney from the same county, Mark Hasse, was gunned down outside of a nearby courthouse.
Forney Mayor Darren Rozell said that the McLelland murders appear to be a “targeted attack” potentially linked to Hasse's death.
Authorities said that the FBI was checking to see if Hasse’s killing could be related to the March 19 killing of Colorado Department of Corrections head Tom Clements, who was gunned down after answering the doorbell at his home.
