City Marshal Joseph Crixell was the Uncle of my Grandmother... my Dad’s Mom.

His brother, Teofilo Crixell, mentioned in the report, was my Great Grandfather.

Rest In Peace, Great Uncle Joe...

Rest in Peace City Marshal Joseph L. Crixell. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Brownsville, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the scum who murdered you burn in hell. I pray that the hounds of hell are ripping their souls apart.

On today, the 100th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Brownsville.

Whatever the reason for the Marshal's death he was still a police officer and surprisingly his death was by another officer. God will be the final judge and may City Marshal Joseph Crixell remain resting in peace.
