    DALLAS - The Associated Press reports--
    Police in Texas say a U.S. missionary working in Mexico who brought his mortally wounded wife to the border told authorities in the United States that gunmen in a pickup truck shot her in the head.

    The Pharr Police Department says 59-year-old Nancy Davis died in a South Texas hospital Wednesday about 90 minutes after her husband drove the couple's truck against traffic across the Pharr International Bridge.

    The husband relayed to Texas police and U.S. Customs agents a frantic episode of the couple being fired upon in Mexico and then speeding toward the border. Police described the couple as missionaries who travel extensively into Mexico.

    The scene echoed one described four months ago by an American tourist, who said her husband was gunned down on a border lake.

    Sadder that they didn't have the common sense their God gave a flea to stay out of an area that is known to be rife with that sort of activity.

    My sister-in-law used to work with a Texas-Mexico cross-border mission before she met my brother. Since they got married he has flatly forbidden her to even consider volunteering to do it again, exactly for this sort of reason. They now have 3 kids, so it's a moot point, but when she had suggested it in the past he told her there was no way she was going back there to do anything of the sort.
