Two bodies found at far south Bexar County home, BCSO says

Officials called it a “heartbreaking” scene for family members who came to check on their relatives after asking BCSO for a welfare check earlier in March.

SAN ANTONIO — Two dead bodies were found inside a home in far south Bexar County on Tuesday afternoon, according to officials with BCSO.

Bexar County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the 15900 block of Martinez Street, near South Flores Street, around 10 a.m. for reports of multiple DOAs found. Neighbors say the owner of this home is involved in the towing industry and there is usually a lot of activity here at this site.

Officials called it a “heartbreaking” scene for family members who came to check on their relatives after asking BCSO for a welfare check earlier in March. Deputies tried to gain access twice in the month of March, but no one answered the door. They called out on the loudspeaker and tried their phone, but no success in reaching anybody.

Relatives came back Tuesday and essentially broke down the door to gain access.

The bodies of two men, one in his 80s and the other one in his 40s, were both found deceased in a bedroom. A weapon was found in that same bedroom.

Sadly, both bodies were in a state of decomposition, so it is not immediately apparent how they died. Officials say they have both been dead for some time.

The medical examiner will have to rule on it.

BCSO is currently waiting on a search warrant for the premises in order to conduct their investigation.

Investigators in Hazmat suits have been outside the home and checking out what they can and taking pictures while they wait for that document.

This is a developing story.
