CASS COUNTY, TX (KSLA) -

East Texas authorities confirm the deaths of two people found inside a Cass County home is now considered a double homicide case.

The Cass County Sheriff's Office says when 47-year-old Doyle Pollard didn't show up for work on Monday, co-workers went to his home on County Road 4683 just outside of Atlanta to check on him.

Inside they found Pollard and 42-year-old Dyrika Jones.

Deputies say the bodies may have been inside the home since Sunday morning.

Texas Rangers were called to the scene to work on the investigation. The sheriff's office says a few people of interest are being interviewed, but no one has been arrested.

    More warm and dry weather ThursdayMore warm and dry weather Thursday

    Through tonight, temperatures will cool down to the lower 60s along the I-10 corridor and south. North of I-10 will get down to the upper 50s. So it will not be quite as cool tonight. It will still be clear with no chance of any rain.   Thursday will also be nice outside! However, it will be slightly warmer again with the 80s returning. Granted, it will be the lower 80s, with more low humidity, so it will still feel very nice! Therefore, it will be a great time to get outside!
