CASS COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Two people are found shot to death in East Texas, and there are no known suspects for the crime. It happened in Cass County on County Road 1114, located off Highway 59 between Linden and Atlanta Texas.

The victims have been identified as Sarah Olson of Queens City, and Jay McDaniel of Hooks, Texas. Both were 30-years-old.

Police say McDaniel was a prison guard with a TDC unit in New Boston. As for Olson we're still learning details on her. We do know the victims were found dead in a Ford Mustang, Wednesday morning.

Thursday, forensic investigators were searching the car for clues and finger prints. The Mustang was found on a dead-end dirt county road Wednesday Morning around 10am.

Authorities say Olson and McDaniel's bodies were found in the back seat.

"The male was shot with a shot gun and it also looks like a hand gun," said Sheriff James Estes, with Cass County. "The female was shot multiple times with a hand gun or some type of weapon."

No weapons were found at the scene. Both victims will undergo autopsies in Dallas.

Police say they have no suspects, yet.

Sheriff Estes says a passerby spotted the car Monday in the same location, adding that both victims were reported missing since Sunday night. It's possible the bodies could have been there for at least four days.

As for as a motive, authorities don't have one at this time.
