Three people were found dead in a Cherokee County mobile home Tuesday morning about 25 miles south of Tyler. A fourth was found dead in the driveway.
An elderly woman, who lives in a brick home in front of the mobile home park, called 911.
In the initial article from Fox 4, police arrested two people with suspected connection to the murders. At the time of the original article, a third suspect that drove off in one of the victim’s cars was still at large.
The sheriff told Fox 4, “He just killed four people, so we are going to call him armed and dangerous,” the sheriff said. “Any time a murderer is on the loose, the public has some sense of danger.”
However, in an updated article from Fox 4, it’s revealed police found the third suspect and have charged all three with capital murder.
The three perpetrators are 21-year-old Dylan Welch, 37-year-old Billy Phillips and 20-year-old Jesse Pawloski.
All four victims, whose names were not released, were shot to death. Cherokee County Sheriff Brent Dickson described the victims as an 18-year-old male, a 47-year-old male, a 45-year-old woman and a woman said to be in her mid-30s or 40s.
The youngest victim may have known the killers.
Investigators found the gun used in the murders along with stolen property from the crime scene.
Sheriff Brent Dickson assures the community they can rest easy knowing the three men involved in this crime have been arrested. He says “with these three behind bars, when we know they won’t be involved in that anymore, our community can sleep a little safer now.”
