The body of District Judge Tom Greenwell was discovered Monday evening in his chambers at the Nueces County Courthouse. He suffered what is believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Greenwell took over the 319th district court in 2001, and became the first Republican in Nueces County to win a county-wide office. He was 57 years old.
