Maine Town in Mourning Over Texas Campsite Slayings

A Maine community is in mourning over the deaths of two former residents who were among six people killed in Texas.

Carl Johnson was killed along with his daughter, Hannah Johnson, last weekend. Carl Johnson's wife, Cynthia, was the sole survivor.

The University of Maine at Farmington says the parents retired from UMF in 1999 to pursue their passion for travel. Their daughter graduated from Mount Blue High School in Farmington and held a degree from the University of Maine.

Farmington Town Manager Richard Davis tells the Sun Journal that it's a "devastating tragedy."

In a news conference Tuesday, Steven Woodruff says the six family members killed at a Texas campsite over the weekend were part of a blended family that had come from as far away as California for a weekend together.

In Texas, police have charged 33-year-old William Hudson with murder.

The victims were killed on wooded land owned by Thomas Kamp, Hannah's boyfriend. He was killed along with his older children and Hannah's 6-year-old son.
