UPDATE: double murder in Longview, TX

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW, TX (KSLA) - Investigators say they now have a better idea of what police describe as a likely double-murder suicide in east Texas.

Police in Longview, Texas discovered the 3-bodies at home on Lincoln Drive Saturday morning.

Detectives say it appears 62-year-old Ronald Smart shot and killed his wife Bonnie and son Byron before turning the gun on himself.

Worried neighbors began noticing newspapers piling-up since Thursday, and called police after one of them spotted two bodies on the floor while looking through a window.

Some casually knew the victims as people who had tried help them in the past with storm damage.
