Elderly couple dead in apparent double murder in East Travis Co.

Posted: Updated:

Two people are dead tonight in what appears to be a double murder in East Travis County.

It happened on Hog Eye Road between Manor and Elgin.

Neighbors tell us they are an elderly couple who have lived there for years.

Travis County investigators tells us they received the call a little after 2:30 p.m. Friday from a neighbor who says a family member had called them to see if they could check on the couple because they haven't heard from them in a while.

When the neighbor arrived, she found the bodies.

Travis County just received the search warrant tonight and now they're really able to go in and start the investigation which they see as a homicide.

Detectives have identified a person of interest. They know where the person is and will be talking with them in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Neighbors we spoke with only had good things to say about this couple -- they believe they were shot by someone they know.
