According to Polk County Sheriff’s Office, a call came in early Monday morning on several victims down at a ranch on FM 3126 in Polk County near Lake Livingston. Units arrived and found 5 deceased and one female who was alive. According to that female who was the daughter of the owner of the home, she heard a commotion and popping sound close to 5 am. When she awoke later she made the discovery and called another family member who called the sheriffs office. Deceased inside was Mr. Delaney, and Randy Horn. Outside in the breezeway was the female owner of the home, Linda Delaney, her granddaughter Ashley and Ashley’s daughter who was 15-months old. Investigators say there are no suspects being sought but stop short of calling it a murder-suicide until the autopsy report from Jefferson County comes in. They did not disclose a weapon.
