One escapes Titus county murder suicide

By Bob Hallmark - bio | email

LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- Investigators say one of the victims in yesterday's double murder-suicide in Titus county, was probably just in the wrong place at the wrong time. 48-year-old Lee Boyd shot co-worker Junior Lee Whorton, with a 12 gauge shot gun then turned it on himself. Before that shooting he killed his alleged girlfriend, Vivian Mitchell.

Police say the shooting was a case of jealously over Mitchell's ex-boyfriend, but Whorton was not the ex-boyfriend. Now officers are reporting that Boyd called out for another man, who was able to get away from the scene. Why Whorton was shot, will likely never be known. Autopsies have been ordered.
