Authorities in Mexico's Tamaulipas state say they are coordinating with U.S. law enforcement to launch an investigation into the killing of American missionary Nancy Davis.
State Attorney General spokesman Ruben Dario Lopez says Mexico will investigate the assault on the couple as they tried to avoid an illegal roadblock while driving in Tamaulipas, as well as the gunshot that killed 59-year-old Davis.
But Lopez said Friday the state is not investigating a murder because Davis died in the U.S.
Her husband Sam Davis frantically drove his bleeding wife for help, crossing the wrong way on an international bridge into Texas, where she later died.
The assault occurred Wednesday.
