Anaqua Springs shooting case reassigned after sheriff deems investigation ‘incomplete’
The investigation has been ongoing with assistance from the FBI since Jan. 10, 2019, when Nichol Olsen was found dead with her daughters, 10-year-old London Bribiescas and 16-year-old Alexa Montez in their Anaqua Springs home. Salazar called the investigation that was turned into him “incomplete” during a press conference on Thursday. Salazar said he’s felt pressure from a civil attorney representing family members of the victims, but the sheriff said it won’t stop him from continuing his investigation. Salazar said the case was turned over to an investigator in the cold case unit who will use that team’s resources to see if he can turn up new information in the investigation. The sheriff did not provide a timeline for when he expected the case to be completed.
No evidence refutes murder-suicide ruling in Anaqua Springs killings, sheriff says
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. “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. 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.
