NEW ULM — Police say a call from a New Ulm trucking company led to the discovery of three bodies in San Antonio, Texas.

Employees at J&R Schugel became concerned about a driving team because they hadn’t heard from the two in more than two weeks. The company had contracted with the two drivers for more than a decade.

Authorities in New Ulm contacted police in San Antonio and asked them to investigate. Officers went to a house, looked through a window and saw a man dead in a chair. Once inside, police discovered another man dead on a bedroom floor and the woman wrapped in a blanket in another room.

A police report said the two males were 76 and 45 and the woman was 67. Authorities say it appears to be a double murder-suicide case.
