KFDM News learns PA Council set to vote Tuesday on tax agreement with Valero

PORT ARTHUR - KFDM News has learned the Port Arthur City Council is on the verge of a tax agreement with Valero after councilmembers voted to annex the refinery property.

Last week council voted to annex the Valero Refinery property by December 31.

The two sides had been unable to negotiate a new in lieu of tax agreement.

Annexation would mean Valero pays taxes on 100 percent of its value, leading to an additional tax payment of several million dollars.

Police say deaths of two brothers apparent suicides

BEAUMONT - From Beaumont Police Department

On Thursday, December 18, at about 5:11 p.m., Patrol Officers responded to a report of two bodies found behind a house in the 3300 block of Concord Road.  A resident of the house phoned our 911 Communications Center after he found two of his family members deceased in a wooded area located on their property.

Officers arrived and found two men deceased.  Detectives have a preliminarily identified  the men as two brothers from Houston.  Detectives are still working to verify their ages.  The men were relatives of the residents of the house.

Detectives have conducted initial interviews of family members and at this early point in the investigation, it appears that this incident may have been a double suicide.  The behavior and conversations of the two brothers during the past weeks appears to indicate their intention to commit suicide.

Detectives are in the process of taking formal statements from family members to confirm these initial reports.  Judge Nancy Beaulieu has ordered autopsies as the investigation continues.

Detectives are not releasing the identities of the two men pending formal notification of their next of kin.
