GREENVILLE - Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks says the case of Cora McAbee and Brandon Howell has been assigned to a new investigator and hopes additional testing of items from the murders will finally lead to an arrest.
The two victims were found dead on May 25, 2006 inside McAbee’s home along FM 1903. The murders were believed to have occurred as the couple slept.
A reward offered by the family of the victims has exceeded $10,000. No one has ever been formally charged in the case.
