The killings of two Kaufman County, Texas, prosecutors have prompted a broad investigation by local, state and federal agencies, including the Texas Rangers, the FBI and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Meanwhile, speculation has persisted in town about the involvement of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas prison gang.
