Guns believed used in the slayings of a Tyler Co. couple earlier this year have been recovered from a pond not far from the home where four of the people charged in the case lived. A defense lawyer in the case says 18-year-old Cameron Westfall led authorities to the weapons believed used to kill 34-year-old Nathan Maddox and his 30-year-old wife, Krystal. Westfall, his parents and sister are charged in the January slayings in front of a church near Colmesneil in Tyler County. They’ve all pleaded not guilty.
The couple was ambushed while on a court-allowed visit with Nathan Maddox’s 5-year-old daughter who had been living with the Westfall family.
Beaumont attorney Jonathan Stovall said the weapons could be the strongest evidence against the family.
