iPhone 5 text messaging

Recently text messages were being sent to a couple of my contacts in my phone that I hadn't talked to in months who live a thousand miles away. Nobody had access to my iPhone 5 at the time they were sent, so I suspect that someone is remotely accessing my iPhone 5. How did they get access and can I trace down who is doing it?

    Suspecting that, some kind of apps install on your iphone like "iphone spy app" or something same like that without your knowledge or by you accidentally. Without making any changes, it is not possible to hack/ remotely access a iphone. First check all apps and delete which is not use/ necessary. Ensuring all of these may solve your problems.

    I'll give that a try but I haven't really downloaded any new apps in a while. Would it be possible that someone is disguising their number with mine?  Apparently one of the people that was being text has had this happen to them a couple times, where they were receiving random question from contacts that were obviously not sending the messages.

    Though it is not a solution for your Q, but have you registered your iphone in icloud ! This icloud can secure your iphone in all respect and navigate here, that what can it do for your device:

    Have you changed your password for the device and your Apple account? That's always a good first step. As far as finding out who did it, you can go as far as a forensics analysis but it may not be worth the effort. A factory reset might be the best option.
