      COMMENT: Martin Kortz (her Grandfather) was killed with an axe by Nellie Kortz's son from a previous marriage. The son made his mother clean up the mess, and then took her to San Antonio for hiding since she was the only witness. Martin was killed because he asked for money to buy a new suit.

      Date: 4 June 1989
    6. [S90] Death Certificate for Martin Kortz, De Witt Co. Cert. # 3917.
      Informant was Peter Kortz. Death certificate indicates that he was murdered near Yorktown at the age of 86. Burial at "Catholic Cemetery" with address given as "Yorktown, Texas". It is not clear if the address is the cemetery address or the undertaker's address. However with burial given the day after death, it would make more sense that it was local in Yorktown.
