HALLETTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - South Texas police are looking for a
suspect in the deaths of three people found fatally shot inside their home.

The discovery was made Friday. A preliminary autopsy reports says a married couple and their 19-year-old son all died after being shot in the head.

Officials say the victims had likely been dead for several days before a mail carrier noticed a foul odor coming from the house.

A capital murder arrest warrant has been issued for Ronald Wayne Spencer Jr., 19.

Authorities say he lived with the family but was not related.

Found dead in the home were: Darrin James Conniff, 40; his wife, Gina Sue, 41; and their son, Christopher James.
