Mayor of Coppell, Texas Jayne Peters and Daughter Found Dead in Possible Murder-Suicide - Crimesider - CBS News My only concern is: what is the order of succession of mayor in Coppell? Will the head of the City Council assume the role? Will the City Council appoint someone? Or will their be a special election? If anyone knows the answer, please enlighten us.
