SAPD identify double murder-suicide victims

Victims identified as Herbert Richell, Mary Richell, George Allen Richell


The San Antonio Police Department on Friday released the names of the people killed in a double murder-suicide on the city's West Side.

Police said Herbert Richell, 76, shot and killed his wife, Mary Richell, 67, and their son, George Allen Richell, 45, before he killed himself.

Officers made the discovery Thursday after someone called from Minnesota wondering why the father and son failed to report to their trucking job for several weeks.

A motive has not been released by police.
