ATLANTA, Texas (KETK) – Two bodies found earlier this month in a burned-out trailer were shot and killed before the fire, according to local investigators.

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office says the bodies found in Atlanta were a male and a female. According to Sheriff Larry Rowe, a forensics examination showed the man and the woman were deceased before the camper burned.
