Visitation, funerals scheduled for San Antonio mom and two slain daughters

January 23, 2019

Visitation and funeral services have been scheduled for a mother and her two daughters who were found shot to death in a luxury home in far northwest Bexar County two weeks ago.

The visitation and services for hairstylist Nichol Leila Olsen, 37, and her daughters, Alexa Denice Montez, 16, and London Sophia Bribiescas, 10, will happen at the same time, said the teen’s father, Carlos Montez Jr.

Visitation will take place from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday at Mission Park Funeral Chapels Stone Oak at 23755 U.S. 281 North in San Antonio, said Michael Hoffman, general manager of that facility.

Funeral services will follow at 11 a.m. Saturday at A Place for Life Church at 5820 NW Loop 410 in San Antonio, Hoffman said.

Interment will happen at a later date, he said. That event will be private.

Olsen and her two daughters were found fatally shot Jan. 10 in a house where they lived with Olsen’s boyfriend in the gated Anaqua Springs Ranch subdivision near Leon Springs.

Olsen had been shot once in the head and her death was ruled a suicide by the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office. But her friends and family have strongly rejected that finding, saying she would never harm her children or herself.

Montez, a cheerleader and sophomore at Clark High School, had been shot once in the head, while Bribiescas, a fifth-grader at Leon Springs Elementary School, suffered a gunshot wound to the head and neck. Their deaths were ruled homicides.

Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar has been reluctant to accept the medical examiner’s ruling that Olsen died by her own hand without doing further investigation. His agency is still examining the shootings. Salazar has called in the FBI to assist.

Olsen’s boyfriend, Charlie Wheeler, 31, who owns the house where the shootings occurred, told authorities he returned there on the morning of Jan. 10 to find the mother and daughters dead. He told investigators he’d left the house the previous night after a conflict with Olsen and went to stay at a family member’s home in another city.

Investigators are waiting on cellular tower records and vehicles’ GPS data to verify his statements.

Salazar has called Wheeler “a person of interest,” but not a suspect.

Wheeler has not been charged with any wrongdoing and has fully cooperated with the investigation since the day of the shootings, sheriff’s officials said. His attorneys said they welcome the FBI’s involvement.

Wheeler is not the only person of interest, Salazar said.
