STOCKDALE -- Funeral services were held Monday for Steven and Ramona Lambeck, the victims of a shooting early Sept. 20 in Stockdale that shook the community to its core.
According to Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr., his office received a call at 3:15 a.m. that day. Officers arriving on the scene near C.R. 401 and U.S. 87 found the couple dead from gunshot wounds. Steven’s son, Tyson, 29, was shot in the left shoulder, according to the sheriff’s Chief Deputy Johnie Deagen, who is the case’s lead investigator.
Deagen said Steven and Ramona were found dead in their bedroom, each with gunshot wounds to their heads.
Tyson was transported to the San Antonio Military Medical Center, where spokesman Dewey Mitchell said he was treated and released the following day.
Tackitt said there were no signs the incident was the result of a home invasion, which was the subject of early speculation in the community.
“There was no forcible entry, nothing rummaged through,” Tackitt said.
The bodies of the victims were transported to the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s office in San Antonio as the investigation continued.
Tackitt said his office requested the assistance of the Texas Rangers, who arrived in Stockdale later that day. As of press time Sept. 24, Deagen said the investigation was active and that several persons of interest, including family members, had been interviewed. Officials also executed a warrant to search the home.
Because the investigation still is in the early stages, Deagen would not indicate what type of weapon was used or what evidence investigators removed from the home.
Steven, 56, and Ramona, 50, married in 2006 in Seguin. They settled in Stockdale to be closer to Steve’s four children and his grandchildren.
Officials urge anyone with information that might help the investigation to call the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office at 830-393-2535, or Crime Stoppers of Wilson County at 830-393-INFO (4636).
