New details have surfaced nearly a month after a woman and her two young daughters were found dead inside a home in Texas.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, the FBI joined Bexar County authorities in investigating the violent deaths of Nichol Olsen, 37, Alexa Montez, 16, and London Bribiescas, 10, earlier this month.
WOIA cited a new sheriff’s office report provides context surrounding the nature of a crime initially reported by Olsen’s boyfriend, Charles Edward Wheeler. He reportedly contacted authorities on January 10 to report a suicide at the home in Anaqua Springs Ranch.
Upon arrival, one deputy reported finding Wheeler in the front yard apparently weeping but noting he they did not observe any tears associated with the display. Wheeler reportedly informed the deputy that Olsen and the two girls were in the home.
He reportedly said he spent the previous night elsewhere after an argument with Olsen and claimed he could not get in touch with them after leaving at about 10 p.m.
Wheeler reportedly told police that he found the bodies upon returning to the home that morning.
The deputy reported that he found the three bodies on the floor near each other upstairs — each with a gunshot wound and “cold and rigid to the touch.”
Reports show the scene surrounding the bodies included blood smeared on the walls and floors.
Though authorities brought him in for questioning, he has not been named a suspect in the case, according to the San Antonio Express News.
One of Wheeler’s attorneys released a statement urging “people not to jump to conclusions” as the investigation unfolds.
“And respect the privacy of presumptively innocent people and of Charlie Wheeler, who did not commit a crime here,” Mark Stevens said.
