County Attorney attending memorial for slain Kaufman County D.A.

County Attorney Lori Kaspar headed toward Sunnyvale Thursday morning (April 4) to attend the 1 p.m. memorial service for slain Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland. The bullet-riddled bodies of the D.A. and his wife, Cynthia, were found last weekend in their home. McLelland’s chief felony prosecutor, Mark Hasse, was gunned down near the Kaufman County courthouse on Jan. 31. No arrests have been made. It is not yet known whether the killings are connected, but the assassinations have made national news and have put prosecutors across the state on high alert. “I am taking security with me,” Kaspar said Thursday morning as she prepared to hit the road for Sunnyvale. She said that McLelland “was a friend of mine.”
