KAUFMAN, TX – There are still no clear leads in the investigation into who killed Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia over the weekend or the county’s Assistant DA Mark Hasse back in January.
So now authorities are stepping things up — to billboards. A $200,000 reward was announced on Thursday. The goal is to get some leads.
At this point, one man has been arrested for terroristic threats, but authorities say they don’t think he’s involved in the murders. Other theories range from personal grudges, to cartels, to the Aryan Brotherhood.
The murders have led to heightened tension and security in the Department of Justice, and that’s not just the case in Texas.
There’s a simultaneous search and investigation underway out of Colorado. In this case, two supposed members of another racist group are wanted in connection to the murder of Colorado Prisons Chief Tom Clements. Authorities say James Lohr and Thomas Guolee may be heading to Texas. They are being considered armed and dangerous.
