MIDLAND COUNTY - One employee made a disturbing discovery in Midland County on Monday afternoon.

Just before 4 p.m., a Lynn Energy employee found the bodies of a male and female on the Nobles Oil Lease Property located on County Road 60, east of FM 1788 in Midland County.

Officials say the bodies of 44-year-old Elizabeth Rangel Torres and 50-year-old Arturo Alvarado both of Midland were found outside of a vehicle and both had gunshot wounds.

Officials believe the bodies of Torres and Alvarado were at the scene for at least two hours.

Midland deputies found a gun at the scene as well as three to four spent cartridges.

Both bodies will be sent to Tarrant County for an autopsy.

Investigators do not think the man and woman are related because of their last names.

Right now, officials do not have a motive but they do not think anyone else is involved in the incident.
