    Live Oak County couple missing, burned car found nearby

    "Investigators with the Live Oak County Sheriff's Office are handling the disappearance of a husband and wife from their store, alongside the discovered of bodies inside a burned out car found nearby.

    The Progress is reporting the large crime scene is at the intersection of Highway 59 and FM 1359, west of George West.

    Sheriff Larry Busby is not providing very much information at this time as his office is busy working with the families and covering the crime scene."

    The identities of the bodies found inside the car have not been confirmed."

    Just speculating but it seems the bodies found would be the couple who is missing from their store.

    I looked at the photos of their business but couldn't see well enough to see what type of business it is. Were you able to see it, Los?

    It was sad to see the Santa displays out front though.

    Just speculating again, but it seems like someone came in and robbed them of their money at the store and then made them leave. Maybe one of the suspects (if more than one is involved) drove the couple's vehicle and then they were both murdered so neither one could ID them.

    I use to think when a store owner was robbed but also murdered they may have known their killer but I no longer believe that has to be the case since we are seeing so many murderers who are complete strangers to the victims.

    The police have to already know if the vehicle is the one they drove or if their vehicle is missing from their store.

    All stories like this are so sad no matter when they happen but they seem even sadder when it is just two days away from Christmas. Lives of the family members are forever changed.

    I hope LE solves who the victims are (although I think they already know) and the suspect/s are found and quickly arrested. I hope and pray they weren't tied up in their vehicle unable to get out and then it was set on fire. Being burned alive has to be such a painful way to die. I cant even begin to imagine the fear and horror if that happened to the ones found.

    IMO

    Just out of the blue...........................could the mother and 'influenza' son have anything to do with this? Probably not, but you never know. Maybe this lunatic mother decided to rob the store. They have probably ditched her truck by now and may be desperate.

    The store looks to be just a country store. Probably used to be a hardware/feed & seed store. The couple probably lived there as well.

    I wonder why the CSI people were at the truck stop photographing a truck(s)?

    More will be known soon I'm sure! GB this couple.

    Hwy 59 between Houston and Laredo is known for illegal transportation of stolen cars being taken into Mexico and also known to us in south Texas as the main artery for anything or anyone bad going into and out of Mexico. It is not the safest area by any means. I know many people that used to go to Mexico for the day and take that route back in the 90's but rarely (if ever) hear of anyone I know anymore going that route for a fun day trip.

    I was unable to find any new articles on this horrific crime. One of the above links was saying that since the Texas Rangers are not leading the investigation, all info has to come from the Live Oak County Sheriff's Office. And he (they) are not saying much, apparently.

    LIVE OAK COUNTY (Kiii News) -
    Money may have been part of the motive behind the Dec. 23 murder of a couple in Live Oak County.

    The victims were found outside of the Camco store inside a burned truck in George West at Highway 59 and FM 1359. 55-year old Bill Hammit and his 56-year old wife Sandra Garcia lived at that location and ran the business.

    Authorities believe the couple were possibly robbed, shot and then burned as the killer tried to cover his tracks.

    If more than $10k is missing, that is definitely enough for murder...sorry to say. No other motive needed. Jmo
