Three related women—two teen girls and a woman in her 30s—were found fatally shot inside a multimillion-dollar home located in an upscale, gated community in San Antonio, Texas, Thursday, authorities announced. The two teens appear to be the “victims of foul play” and their apparent cause of death was homicide, Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said in a press conference. The woman’s cause of death has not been determined. “It’s just too early to tell on the third person if that is a murder or a suicide,” Salazar said, adding that none of the victims have been identified. “We’ll let the medical examiner take a look at it.” All three died at the scene after suffering gunshot wounds to their upper torsos, Salazar said.
A man who was dating the woman in her 30s discovered the three bodies just after 9 a.m. when he arrived at the Anaqua Springs Ranch community home, officials said. There were no reports of gunshots in the area Wednesday night or Thursday morning, Salazar said, but that could be due to the location of the murders. “They’re multimillion-dollar homes,” Salazar said. “Very big. Very big lots. And the homes are probably very well constructed. So it’s quite possible no one heard anything.” He added: “Naturally, it’s not a common area for us to see this type of activity but it just goes to show that crime really knows no boundaries, geographic, socioeconomic or otherwise. It could happen anywhere, literally.”
