CASS COUNTY, Texas – A 12-year-old boy and his 32-year-old stepfather were found dead late last night from apparent gunshot wounds in their Cass County home. The bodies were found after law enforcement officials received notice telling them to come to the home.
The sheriff’s department received a call at 10:42 p.m., said an official with the Cass County Sheriff’s Department.
“The department received a 911 call from a 13-year-old boy telling us to come to a residence at County Road 2247 on the west side of the county.” That location is between Hughes Springs and Marietta.
After arriving on scene and finding the bodies, the Justice of the Peace ordered both victims to be transported to Southwest Forensics, the official added.
Texas Rangers and Cass County Deputies are investigating the deaths.
