son kills parents overnight

SONY DSCWe are just returning from a double homicide at 16431 Oak Knoll at Old Houston Road that occurred just after 10p.m.. A juvenile female called 911 and told dispatchers that her uncle just shot her grandparents.

When deputies arrived they found Randall Wayne Branstetter, 54 inside the home shot to death.

In addition they found Cathy June Gibbs, 58, outside the home shot to death.

Both shot with a handgun.

Both were pronounced dead by Montgomery County Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace James Metts who ordered Eickenhorst Funeral Directors to transport the victims to the Montgomery County Forensic Center.

An attempt to locate was issued across the county for the son of the victims identified as Joseph Samuel Branstetter, 24, who also lived in the home.

Law Enforcement began the search for Branstetter who was driving a black Ford pickup with a gold stripe and a Harley Davidson sticker in the back window.

Approximately 11 pm Joseph Branstetter drove up to the scene, parked his truck and calmly walked to the police line stating, “I’m the one”, and identified himself to deputies. He was quickly taken into custody.

Detectives and the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office remained on the scene all night investigating.

Joseph Branstetter has been handled several times before by Montgomery County Law Enforcement.

He has now been booked into the Montgomery County Jail on 2 counts of Capital Murder.

    I dont know why he did it but I really want to know and I want to know if he is getting death or 2 life sentences. I still cannot believe that this has happened. So tragic. So sad

    Sounds like another person’s child having drug and mental problems, graduating from drugs and unlawful weapons to double murder. This is another instance which proves that people can easily get guns illegally to commit crimes if they want to. The only thing laws against owning guns do is keep the law-abiding citizen from getting them. Criminals don’t care about gun or any other laws.
