PCSO releases findings in deaths of Nuncio family

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office delivered an update Thursday on their investigation into the shooting deaths of Michael Nuncio, his wife Debra Nuncio, and their son Anthony Nuncio.. All three were found deceased at the home in the Escapees Park on Aug. 30 after a family member requested a welfare check.

Investigators with PCSO and the Texas Rangers said that Anthony Nuncio entered his parents’ bedroom and shot both parents while they were in bed.

Despite suffering several gunshot wounds, Michael Nuncio fought back, killing his son Anthony.

“Michael then succumbed to his wounds before he could call for assistance,” said Capt. Rickie Childers of the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators gather evidence at the Nuncio residence after three family members were found dead at the home on Aug. 30.
