Seagoville storage shed connected with McLelland, Hasse murders

Posted: Updated:

Sources tell FOX4 the Seagoville storage shed FBI and other authorities have been sifting through since 4:00 p.m. Saturday is indeed connected to the murders of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland, his wife Cynthia, and Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse.

Federal, state and local agents pulled out several items from the shed, including a white four-door Crown Victoria. FBI Crime Scene Technicians wore moon suits to photograph the vehicle, which was towed away from the storage site early Sunday morning.

The Gibson Self Storage Unit is located on Seagoville Road near Highway 175 about halfway between Dallas and Kaufman.

This search comes one day after FBI agents and investigators searched the home of Former Kaufman County Justice of the Peace Eric Williams. Sources tell FOX 4 News that Williams is now a suspect in the murder investigation.

Investigators also searched a second home seven doors away, believed to belong to one of Williams' relatives.

Williams was arrested and booked into jail early Saturday morning after state and federal agents searched his home. He's charged with making a terroristic threat.  He has not been charged with murder.

McLelland and his wife were shot and killed two weeks ago in their Kaufman Co. home. Hasse was murdered near the Kaufman County Courthouse on January 31. A combined $200,000 reward has been posted for both cases.
