UPDATE: 1/16 10:15 a.m.
SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – Some new details from the Bexar County Medical Examiner on the deaths of a hair stylist and her daughters at a home in Anaqua Springs Ranch last week indicates Nichol Olsen died of a gunshot wound to the head by her own hand.
The Medical Examiner’s report also shows that 16-year-old Alexa Montez died of a gunshot wound to the head. Investigators have determined that Montez and a younger girl were homicide victims, but no details are available on the death of the 10-year-old child identified by family and friends as London Bribiescas.
Their bodies were found Thursday morning by the homeowner who was in a relationship with Olsen. He told investigators he did not spend Wednesday night at the home.
A candlelight vigil is scheduled at 6 this evening at Oblate Missions Grotto on Blanco Road near Oblate Drive.
“It’s really about support. We know that we lost some pretty amazing people,” Gerard Kolodejcak said on the Trey Ware Morning Show.
While the Medical Examiner has ruled the deaths a suicide and two homicides, Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar has stated the investigation is far from over. He’s not ready to say that Olsen killed her daughters before taking her own life.
“We’re happy that Sheriff Salazar said that they’re going to continue the investigation,” said Kolodejcak, adding that they’re “determined to make sure that the truth comes out.”
UPDATE: 1/15 12:30 PM
SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – The owner of a Northwest Bexar County home where a woman and her two daughters were found dead is being described as a person of interest.
“I think we’re calling everybody involved in this case a person of interest, including this homeowner,” Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar told the Trey Ware Morning Show on KTSA.
“Yeah, you’re a person of interest if three people were found deceased in your home, whether you were there or not, and two of them have been listed as homicides. Yeah, you’re a person of interest,” Salazar told KTSA, adding that the ownerowner has been cooperating with investigators.
However, he says there are no suspects at this time.
“We’re a long ways off from naming anybody culpable in the deaths of these girls, but we’re also a long ways off from clearing anybody,” said the sheriff.
The homeowner, who had a relationship with 37-year-old Nichol Olsen told investigators he found Olsen and her daughters dead when he returned to the home around 9 a.m. Thursday.
The Bexar County Medical Examiner has ruled that Olsen committed suicide and the the girls were homicide victims, but Salazar isn’t ready to say that Olsen killed the girls before taking her own life.
“To say well, the M.E.’s saying she killed herself, therefore she must have murdered these two little girls, that’s a big stretch,” said the sheriff.
Sheriff Salazar says investigators are reviewing surveillance video from neighbors, cell phone records, text messages, cellular tower data and GPS technology as they try to figure out the locations of people involved in the case at the time the killings occurred.
Meanwhile, a candlelight vigil for Olsen and her daughters is scheduled at 6 pm Wednesday at Oblate Missions Grotto. A positive ID for the 10-year-old girl has not been released by authorities, but the other victim is identified as 16-year-old Alexa Montez, a cheerleader at Clark High School.
Within this week we will be holding a memorial for Alexa to honor her life. The date will be posted on this account which we will keep updated. ❤️🦋 pic.twitter.com/zkDL7e4CPE

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – The father of one of the girls killed in a triple shooting at a Northwest side home last week has identified her as 16-year-old Alexa Montez. Photos on Carlos Montez’s Facebook page show the teen wearing a Clark High School cheerleader uniform.
The Bexar County Medical Examiner has not officially identified the 37-year-old woman and two girls, ages 16 and 10, who were found dead in a triple shooting Thursday at a home in the Anaqua Springs Ranch community. Investigators say a man who had a dating relationship with the woman found the bodies when he returned home Thursday morning.
In a Facebook post, Carlos Montez expressed his love for his daughter. Montez said he and his ex-wife, Nichol Olsen, worked through their differences and their divorce to do “what was best for our daughter.”
He said Alexa “grew up to become the greatest gift God had ever given me. I thank and praise Him for the sixteen years He blessed our lives with her presence.”
Montez said Alexa loved God and had a servants heart. He also thanked everyone who has reached out and offered condolences.
“Alex…I love ya. Always have,” Montez said in his Facebook post.
Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar has said the young girls were homicide victims, but investigators are trying to determine if the woman’s death was a homicide or suicide.
