William Hudson is being held on $2.5 million bond
A man has been charged with murder in connection with the deaths of six people at a Texas campsite, PEOPLE confirms.
William Hudson, 33, was arrested Monday and is being held on $2.5 million bond, according to Fox News. Additional charges are expected to be filed.
The bodies of the six victims were discovered on private property, KYTK-TV reports.
The victims were all members of two different families visiting from out of town, CBS19 reports. They were staying in a trailer on the property. Two bodies – a man and a woman – were found inside the trailer, while four others, all male, were found in a nearby pond on Hudson’s property, according to Fox News. There was one female survivor.
Three of the victims have been identified as Hannah Johnson, Thomas Kamp and their son Kade, according to WFAA-TV. Kamp had recently purchased the property where the trailer was parked.
“They bought land probably to camp – come to the piney woods to camp,” said Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor, WFAA reports.
Hudson is not related to the victims and police have yet to establish a motive for the gruesome slayings, according to CBS19.
