Two North Texas missionaries found dead in northern Mexico

| February 1, 2012

LEWISVILLE — Two missionaries from North Texas were murdered in their home outside the violence-plagued northern industrial city of Monterrey, Mexico, the U.S. Embassy and their family said Wednesday.

The U.S. State Department identified the couple as American citizens John and Wanda Sue Casias.

“I’m going to miss her, because she’s so loved,” their daughter Michelle Lumert told News 8. “She is happy, and she’s in a better place.”

She said one of her brothers discovered her parents strangled in their home in Santiago, Nuevo Leon.

The family was originally from Amarillo, Texas, but lived in North Texas before moving to Mexico in 1982 to pursue mission work. The Casias had been married for 40 years and had 10 children and 54 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
