Mrs. Davis was shot in the head. She was then driven to Reynosa on the international border by her husband, Sam. The shooting occurred in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas near San Fernando, about 70 miles south of the U.S. border. She was pronounced dead at a Texas hospital about 2:00 p.m. in McAllen.
The Houston Chronicle reported that Texas authorities believe the couple may have been targeted because their expensive pickup truck, a 2008 Chevrolet is a type “coveted by criminal organizations in Mexico.”
