Hood County Sheriff’s Office reported over the weekend that they believe a Lipan resident was killed by a wild animal, possibly a mountain lion.
Hood County Sheriff’s Office does not agree with TWPD’s conclusion. They said, “It appears we have two conflicting reports from two agencies that are experts in their field. We stand behind the preliminary findings of the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office, that rule out a suicide and a homicide on the death in question. The investigation continues and we continue to gather pictures and statements from locals that have seen and capture on film images of mountain lions.
