TX Dth Idx 1890-1976 -- http://search.labs.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html?..#w=;p=2;c=1320964;t=searchable -- You can view a digitized copy of original death record, see more details, make copies and look for others, too.

According to her DC there was an inquest. It's listed as a homicide. I'd try to obtain a copy of that record. Also, there should be something in a local newspaper about this event.
