Authorities believe it was supposed to be a murder-suicide, but the suspect only managed the latter. Lexington resident Frank Ray, 46, died today from a suspected self inflicted gunshot wound.
Milam County investigators say Ray shot himself last night, moments after crashing his pickup into the Rockdale area home of his ex-girlfriend. A pair of open-valved propane tanks in Ray's truck led authorities to surmise he was trying to blow up his ex's house. A 20-year old female resident inside the home had to be air lifted to an Austin hospital.
