Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar says it's too early to determine who killed two young girls inside a luxury home last week in the Anaqua Springs Ranch subdivision.

Salazar said the Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office ruled the girls' deaths as homicides. A third female, a woman in her 30s, who was also found dead was determined to have killed herself, according to preliminary findings released by the sheriff on Monday.

"We can't just say, 'Oh well then she must've been the one that did this to these two little girls,'" said Salazar. "We still have to go out and find out who it was that killed these two young ladies."

The woman in her 30s was identified last week as Nichol Olsen, 37. One of the younger victims was identified as Alexa Montez, 16, Olsen's daughter. The 10-year-old victim has not been identified. Salazar said it's possible she is also Olsen's daughter, but said positive identification would be provided by the ME's office.

Salazar said the investigation remains ongoing and the agency is still trying to determine who killed the two younger victims. He added the agency cannot simply assume that Olsen killed the girls before turning the gun on herself.

"This case remains very much an open investigation," said Salazar during a Monday press conference.

Additionally, Salazar said the agency is still looking at social media posts, cell phone records, and even appealed to the public to come forward with any information that may help deputies in the case.

"They may have a screenshot in their possession of some of the social media use by at least one of the decedents in this case," said Salazar.
