Arraignment is scheduled for Randall Lee McMahon following indictments on four counts of retaliation for threating to kill four public servants investigating his 33-year-old daughter, Brittany McMahon, whose body was found in the Bandera Pass Subdivision last July.

Bandera County Sheriff Chief Deputy Matt King said Deputy Anthony Morris was dispatched to McMahon’s residence on Goat Hill Road in Lakehills on Oct. 6, 2022, after a report of screaming.

Morris’ report in the incident file says McMahon was “in his front yard, intoxicated, and making various veiled threats toward multiple Bandera County deputies, as well as a Texas ranger.”

The report noted later review of Morris’ body cam revealed McMahon’s threats to kill the four investigators.

The 59-year-old McMahon was indicted Dec. 6 and arrested the next day with an $800,000 bond.

The Bandera County Sheriff Office’s report regarding the discovery of McMahon’s body last July notes Randal McMahon arrived at the scene with a baseball bat saying one of the sheriff’s deputies was responsible for her death.

McMahon was present at the Red Horse Saloon on July 1 with a sign featuring a hand-drawn picture of a “missing” pig labeled as Sheriff Butts alongside Mc-Mahon and Jordan Tompkins, reported missing last April.

“Our sheriff is missing in action, and his lack of work here only proves he is covering something up,” McMahon told the Bulletin.

His daughter’s body would be discovered two days later. A Sheriff’s Department investigation into Brittany McMahon’s death was presented by the 198th District Attorney’s Office to a grand jury Aug. 9 in Kerrville, and the jury agreed with investigators no evidence of a crime existed.

McMahon is scheduled for arraignment next Monday, Jan. 23.

Retaliation is a third-degree felony, according to the Texas Penal Code
