Police are baffled!

Why, who could have shot him? I guess the world will never know.

Investigators are searching for answers after a suspected drunken driver was found shot dead after he allegedly slammed into a family’s truck on a rural Houston-area road, killing two young brothers.

12-year-old David Barajas and his 11-year-old brother, Caleb, were helping their father push his disabled truck down the road when 21-year-old Jose Banda allegedly slammed into them from behind, MyFoxHouston.com reports.

Neighbors say they heard gun shots minutes after the crash. Police responding to the crash found Banda shot in the head, but no gun at the scene. Banda and both boys died.

Investigators say they are trying to determine if Banda was shot before or after the car accident, saying they do not yet have any formal suspects in the case.

    I think he has successfully passed his drunk driving course.

    what amazes me is there is an actual place in the world that has no surveillance on it.

    say, where did this happen again?

    Fubar – no surveillance in my neck of the woods… no jobs either, apparently.

    Sounds like its a closed case to me

    My theory is that the driver, stricken with grief for what he had done, shot himself in the head, ran down to the river, threw his gun in, and then went back to his car and died.

    Such a sad case. Oh well, nothing can be done.

    RE ran down to the river, hey it could happen, I talked to a Medical Examiner on my last GSW suicide, he told me he had recently went to one where the guy took three shots with a .38 to the head before he finally got it right on the 4th, now thats determination….
