Several dozen FBI agents are now assisting the investigation into the killings of Kaufman County, Texas, District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, a bureau spokeswoman said today.
The McLellands were found dead in their home Saturday. It was the second slaying of a Kaufman County prosecutor since January 31, when Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse was gunned down outside his office. Investigators have not said whether they have established a link between the deaths of Hasse and the McLellands, but local officials say they suspect the killings are connected.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry offered his condolences to the McLelland family. He promised to name a replacement for Mike McLellands post "as soon as possible."
