Mike McLelland Feared For His Life – Business Insider
A Texas district attorney and an assistant DA who were killed within months of each other both seemed to know they might be targeted.
Kaufman County DA Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, were gunned down in their home this weekend — two months after Assistant DA Mark Hasse was shot in broad daylight near a courthouse. They were both reportedly armed all the time and on high alert before they were killed.
After Hasse’s death, authorities considered that it might be payback from the white supremacist prison gang, the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas. In November the Kaufman County DA’s office helped indict 34 alleged ABT members, 10 of whom could get the death penalty.
