Grayson Co. Senior Citizen Dies Following Brutal Attack

Posted:

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- A yard near Lake Texoma is outlined in crime scene tape tonight as deputies investigate a murder.

It happened at a home on Scott Hill and Flowing Wells Road, west of Pottsboro. Deputies say they got a 9-1-1 call around 6 p.m. on Monday asking for an ambulance for a woman who was covered in blood.

They found Marlene Cannon, 70, severely beaten. She was flown to Medical City in Plano in critical condition and died on Wednesday as a result of her injuries.

Neighbors say her daughter and son would stay at the home, which was a bar when Cannon bought it, but later shut down. Deputies and the Texas Rangers are investigating.
