Members of the FBI Evidence Response Teams, ATF, Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office, Texas Rangers and others spent Saturday looking through at least one storage unit in Seagoville.

Those agencies are jointly investigating the murders of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland, his wife Cynthia, and assistant district attorney Mark Hasse.

The FBI would only confirm that “law enforcement activities” were taking place at Gibson Self Storage in Seagoville, near U.S. Highway 175, about 15 miles west of Kaufman.

The search started shortly before 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, a day after agents and officers searched two homes in Kaufman. One of those homes belonged to Eric Williams, the former Kaufman County Justice of the Peace who was arrested early Saturday on three charges, two counts of insufficient bond and one count of terroristic threats.

Agents could be seen moving items from at least one storage unit, but the FBI would not confirm how many units were being searched.

A sedan was found in one of those units and agents could be seen looking it over.

The FBI would not say what the search was connected to, whether it was connected to the Hasse and McLelland murders or to Williams.

The storage facility is located near the Seagoville Business Park just off U.S. 175. It’s not far from the Federal Correctional Institution.
