A central Texas prosecutor and his wife were found killed in their house two months after one of his assistants was gunned down near their office, authorities said.
Investigators found the bodies of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, on Saturday, Kaufman County sheriffs Lt. Justin Lewis said. Police, FBI agents, Texas Rangers and deputies were part of the investigation.
Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse was shot to death in a parking lot a block from his office on Jan. 31. No arrests have been made in his death.
Lewis declined to say how the couple died or whether authorities believe their deaths are linked to Hasses. He wouldnt provide further details. Kaufman County is 33 miles southeast of Dallas.
Kaufman Police Chief Chris Aulbaugh told The Dallas Morning News that the McLellands had been shot in their home and although investigators didnt know if their deaths were related to Hasses killing, they couldnt discount it.
It is a shock, Aulbaugh told the newspaper. It was a shock with Mark Hasse, and now you can just imagine the double shock and until we know what happened, I really cant confirm that its related but you always have to assume until its proven otherwise.

OK what were they investigating? I can’t imaging the Texas Rangers will be happy about this...
Who has been recently indicted and not yet come to trial? Who is about to be indicted? Persons of interest.
Wildin’ in Chicago. It’s ok to let loose!
A big DUH to that statement!
The bodies seem to keep piling up.
An ADA and a DA are killed already this year... in a county not exactly heavily populated? Dude LEO...they are connected
Smells like Mexican Drug Cartels
You can bet it’s Mex. Cartels if they refuse to say who may be behind the killings. The big push for Illegal Alien Amnesty cannot be stalled with folks freaking about the Mex Drug Cartels
Mexican Cartels armed with Obamaguns via Fast+Furious.
Ironic that the biggest gun smuggler (Obama) is “calling for” citizens to surrender their guns.
He makes proclamations between smuggling guns to Drug Cartels and to his fellow Moslem Brotherhood terrorists.
Typical lying moslem.
You can’t reason with rabid dogs. Even the greatest of all liberal fictional characters, Atticus Finch in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, knew that.
All da folks are wee-wee’d up.
“Authorities have also been trying to determine whether Hasse’s killing was related to the murder of Tom Clements, Colorado’s prison director, last month.
The Colorado man implicated in Clements’ murder, Evan Ebel, was killed in a shootout with police in Texas two days after the killing.”
Wake up people, the war is here...
I wonder if we’ll ever find out if the weapon(s) were from F & F.
They've been killing LEOS for years in Mexico.
+ Nobody respects our borders.
Texas had better check each persons case load, and who else worked on them.
Sounds like someone getting even after spending years in prison.
Does it bother anybody that the clown that murdered the Colorado State Prison official was headed to Dallas?
What else did he have in his notes, when he was shot?
We heard that several ".223 casings" were recovered at the scene but there is very little in the way of factual information out there. Most believe that all of this is the work the Mexican cartels or the Aryan Brotherhood and all are shook up and scared.
