Nearly two years after Nichol Olsen and her two daughters were found dead inside of their Anaqua Springs home, Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said his office’s investigation will soon be complete.

The investigation into their deaths has been ongoing with assistance from the FBI since Olsen’s boyfriend found the three and called 911 on Jan. 10, 2019. The medical examiner ruled the case a murder-suicide, indicating that Olsen fatally shot her daughters before turning the gun on herself, but Salazar continued looking into the case to see if there was any evidence to refute that conclusion.

After combing through cellphone records, GPS records, surveillance video and forensics testing, Salazar said investigators haven’t found anything leading them to believe the case was a homicide.

“Nothing that i have seen to this point in the case would lead me to refute or try to overturn the medical examiner’s ruling of suicide and murder in this case,” Salazar said during a news conference on Friday.

Salazar defended the length of his investigation, saying he wanted to be sure that foul play was not involved with the killings.

“The last thing that we wanted to do was prolong this for anybody but as I mentioned before ... I did not feel comfortable closing this case with one piece of evidence if another five or six pieces of evidence were within our reach,” Salazar said.

Salazar said he expects the investigation to be complete formally by the end of the year.
