Texas Nurse's Death Investigated As Homicide 1 Year Later

Nearly one year after a Texas nurse's death was ruled as an accident, police have reopened the case and are investigating it as a murder.

In April 2014, 50-year-old Edith Sax was found face down in her pool, still dressed in her scrubs. At the time of the incident, both her family and authorities believed her death was accidental. But new evidence points to a homicide case.

"Edith Sax sustained some injuries in this incident that would be suggestive of her being forced under the water," said Myron Dillingham, a homicide detective with the Houston Police Department.

"It is clear that the person or persons involved in a relationship with Edith Sax that they knew intricacies in the house and her schedule," Vashawnda McLean, lead investigator with the Houston Police Department, said.

Police ruled her husband, Steve Sax, out as a suspect.

Officials said two unidentified men were seen around the home at the time of Sax's death. They believe money was a motive and are looking into her multi-million dollar will and the inheritance she left behind.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of $30,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
