Anderson Co. D.A. speaks out on Kaufman murders

ANDERSON CO., April 2, 2013--Kaufman County is reeling on the tail end of two murders which targeted county prosecutors.

On January 31, 2012, Kaufman County assistant prosecutor Mark Hasse was shot to death in broad daylight, outside a Texas courthouse. Less than two months later, District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, were shot to death in their home. The couple was found dead in their home on Saturday, March 30, after friends failed to make contact with them despite several attemps. According to the search warrant affidavit, each had multiple gunshot wounds.

Despite rumors of the involvment of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, or the Mexican drug cartel, police still do not have any answers.
