The two young sisters found dead along with their mother in their mother’s boyfriend’s Texas mansion can be identified.
Alexa Denice Montez and London Bribiescas were found dead with their mother Nichol Olsen on Thursday morning by Olsen’s 31-year-old boyfriend Charles Edward Wheeler in his gated-community home in San Antonio, Texas.
He told police he returned to the property at 9.07am after the spending the night elsewhere and found the three of them dead inside.
It is unclear where he was overnight or before he found them. Wheeler owns an oil drilling and maintenance company. He bought the home last year for $1million.
Police are yet to confirm whether the deaths were the result of a triple murder or double murder suicide carried out by their 37-year-old hairdresser mother.

Nichol Olsen, 37, was also found shot dead. Her boyfriend Charles Wheeler, left, told police he returned to the $1million home where they lived at 9am and found the bodies
‘It’s way too early to tell who’s a suspect and who’s a witness,’ Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said on Thursday at a press conference.
All three of them had been shot in their upper bodies but police would not give further detail.
‘It’s just too early to tell on the third person if that is a murder or a suicide. We’ll let the medical examiner take a look at it.
‘We’re being meticulous about how this crime scene is processed, for certain,’ Sheriff Salazar said.
On Thursday night, police towed Wheeler’s 2013 Ford pick-up from the scene.
Now, the girls’ fathers’ and their relatives are begging for answers.
Alexa was a high school cheerleader and was in her teens. London was in the fifth grade and was 10.
The bodies were found inside the $1million mansion Wheeler bought last year and where they all live. He told police he returned home, found the bodies and called 911

The girls and their 22-year-old brother Skylar, who is not thought to have been in the home at the time, all have different fathers, none of whom live with them.
On Friday, as news of their death spread, Alexa’s father Carlos shared his grief on social media.
‘There goes my life,’ he wrote. London’s paternal aunt, Emma Mancha Sumners, paid tribute to her in another post where she threatened her killer.
‘Her name was London.
She liked monkeys, painting, and theatre. She was going to go to Costa Rica with us this summer, before starting middle school.
The sisters also have a 22-year-old half-brother, Skylar Noble, who was not thought to be in the home at the time
London (shown left on New Year’s Eve) and Alexa have different fathers. Alexa’s father said her death had destroyed his life. London’s father is yet to comment
‘She had her first glass of champagne a week ago, and will never grow up to be who she was supposed to be.
‘I know there are people on here who can somehow get this message to the bastard who took her from us.
‘So let him know that I’m going to spend every bit of energy and resources I have making sure he rots in jail. Also tell him that you know me, and that I don’t make empty threats,’ she said.
Neither Mr. Montez nor Ms. Manchez Sumners immediately responded to DailyMail.com’s inquiries.
Police are yet to confirm whether they have any suspects and Skylar Noble, Nichol’s oldest child, is yet to comment.
Court records obtained by DailyMail.com show that Nichol divorced Skylar’s father, James Noble, in 1998 when she was only 17 and Skylar was two.
Other records from 2006 detail her divorce from Alexa’s father, Carlos. At the time, she was just 25.
Nichol never married London’s father, 37-year-old Hector Jose Bribiesca, but she sued him for child support in 2013.
Olsen and Wheeler had been dating for at least 18 months. His car was towed from the scene on Thursday night

No gunshots were reported to police on Wednesday night or Thursday morning but Salazar said ‘it’s quite possible no one heard anything’.
Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said all three women suffered gunshot wounds to their upper bodies and were pronounced dead at the scene in Texas
He said: ‘They’re multi-million dollar homes. Very big. Very big lots. And the homes are probably very well constructed. So it’s quite possible no one heard anything.’
‘Naturally, it’s not a common area for us to see this type of activity but it just goes to show that crime really knows no boundaries, geographic, socioeconomic or otherwise. It could happen anywhere, literally.’
Olsen was a licensed cosmetologist and appears to have worked as a hair stylist.
In March of 2014, she was charged with a domestic assault. The case was dropped when the witness failed to appear in court, however.
The attorney who represented Olsen in that case declined to immediately comment when reached by DailyMail.com.
