VICTORIA, Texas — A Victoria man who died one week ago was reportedly
killed by flesh-eating bacteria after a camping trip to Magnolia Beach
on Matagorda Bay.
His wife said she went from planning a family vacation at the beach to planning a funeral days later.
Mattix said her husband, Gary Evans, 56, did not have any noticeable
open wounds or cuts that would have allowed the bacteria to make entry
into his body.
