The Hunt County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a double homicide at a home southeast of Greenville.

Cora McAbee, 42, the owner of Cora’s Cafe in the Cash area, was one of the victims. A male found at the scene has not yet been identified by authorities as the next of kin had not been notified, according to Chief Deputy Robert White.

“We have a white female, white male, both victims of a homicide,” White said, declining to give further details as the investigation was ongoing.

“We’d just as soon not talk about it until we get a chance to talk to all the people out here who may be suspects or witnesses,” White said, adding a cause of death was pending a report from the medical examiner’s office.

The bodies were found at around 5:30 a.m. Thursday inside the residence on County Road 2174, just off of Farm-To-Market Road 1903, by McAbee’s sister, Teri Goodwin, who lives next door.

McAbee had owned Cora’s Cafe for the past five years, and operated the business alongside several of her family members. She previously had owned or worked at several restaurants in Greenville, including the Lee Street Hamburger Company, the Market Cafe and Ruby’s.
