The Kaufman County Sheriff's office responded forcefully to accusations from a self-described family spokesperson in the murder of Mike McLelland and his wife.
The sheriff's office released a statement responding to Chris Heisler, CEO of the Honor Network, saying Heisler's "self-description as family spokesperson and his statement of the family's feelings are both inaccurate and unauthorized" and "Heisler is not a law enforcement officer and is not affiliated with the investigation."
Chris Heisler, with the Honor Network, complained about the lack of reward money in the case in comments made to local media over the weekend.
Presently there is a $200,000 reward for information to find the murderer of DA Mike McLelland and his wife.
"There is no frustration with law enforcement, there is no anger with law enforcement. The frustration is with the lack of information coming into Kaufman so an arrest can be made," Heisler said at a ceremony in McLelland's honor today in Kaufman County.
Heisler is CEO of the Honor Network, which is known for taking the U.S. Honor Flag around the country to honor law enforcement officials.
