Suspicious death at Kland home
by Alexandria Randolph
Texas Rangers and Llano County authorities are currently investigating the suspicious death of a 23-year-old male at a residence in the 200 block of McGee Trail in Kingsland Tuesday.
Llano County Sheriff’s Office said in a release Wednesday deputies, EMS personnel and firefighters responded to a 911 call of a deceased male inside the residence.
“When deputies arrived, they requested investigators respond as well,” the release stated.
A 46-year-old female was taken into custody at the scene, but not been formally charged as of Wednesday morning.
Texas Rangers out of the Waco area confirmed that a fire took place at the residence earlier that morning, but Kingsland Volunteer Fire Chief Danny Stone said he could not comment on the event.
Texas Rangers and a State Fire Marshall responded and assisted county authorities with the investigation.
Llano County Sheriff Bill Blackburn said only that an investigation was taking place and more information would be released when available.
The one-story residence on McGee Street was sectioned off by crime scene tape Tuesday. The front yard was filled with wooden pallets, furniture and a steel mesh trailer.
Neighbors reported that the fire occurred Tuesday morning after the two sons in the family, described as a preteen and teen, had gone to school. Neighbors said over 20 law enforcement vehicles were at the residence.
At 2 p.m., a Llano County Animal Control Officer arrived and then left the scene.
