Officials are investigating a link to the white-supremacist Aryan Brotherhood in Saturday’s murder of a Texas DA and his wife, who were killed just months after his deputy was murdered while investigating the hate group.
The murders have gripped rural Kaufman County with fear, and a massive manhunt was under way for what local authorities believe is the two prosecutors’ common killer.
“In my view, it appears that it was not random,” Forney Mayor Darren Rozell said. “It was a targeted attack.”
The bodies of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland, 63, and his wife, Cynthia, 65, were discovered after a report of a shooting at their home about 35 miles outside of Dallas.
