Two found fatally shot in Coldspring

 

COLDSPRING – Two men were found shot to death in a mobile home on Lynn Street in Coldspring around 4:15 p.m. Monday, July 7. According to San Jacinto County Sheriff's Deputies, it is believed that multiple actors left the scene prior to the arrival of law enforcement officers. San Jacinto County Pct. 2 Constable Roy Pippin Jr., later spotted a vehicle that is believed to be tied to the murder scene about 10 miles away in Shepherd. According to Pippin it took about three hours and many officers, as well as a K-9 unit of six dogs from the Texas Department of Corrections to track the two men who were taken into custody for questioning as "persons of interest." The motive of the crime has not yet been determined. The victims have not been identified and neither have the persons of interest. Texas Rangers are also assisting in the questioning.
