WATCH: Home of Texas Pastor Eugene Keahey Who Died in House Fire With His Wife and One of Their Daughters Had Just Been Foreclosed On as Severe Financial Struggles Are Revealed and Police Say Tragedy is Now a Criminal Investigation

A prominent pastor and his wife have been identified as two of the three people found dead in a home that burned there early Thursday.

Eugene and DeAnna Keahey were well known in the community.

DeAnna once taught at Cedar Hill’s Plummer Elementary.

A third victim has yet to be identified. Police have said the fire is now a criminal investigation.

In spite of the fire that gutted the home, Cedar Hill Police have cautioned that it would be “inappropriate” to speculate on how any of the victims died.
