Friends Remember Murdered Navasota Woman

By  | 

BRYAN, Texas - Friends of the woman found dead inside her Navasota home early Monday morning, say they'll never forget the woman who changed their lives forever.

Autumn Armstrong, 40, worked at Aggieland Title Company in Bryan. Owner and good friend Page Thornton said Armstrong was the person everyone could talk to.

"And if you had problems, I noticed around the office with employees, she would come talk to them and try to make them feel better," said Thornton.

Thornton said Armstrong was a family woman, madly in love with her two children, 20-year-old Aubrey and 12-year-old Avery.

"First thing I thought about was her kids," said Thornton. "She always talked about them."

Thornton said when it came to any problems Armstrong may have had in her personal life, she didn't say much. She said when she last saw Armstrong on Thursday, just days before her death, nothing seemed out of the ordinary.

"She seemed fine," said Thornton. "Laughing, and seemed to be having a good day."

Friends of Armstrong said she'll always be remembered for infectious smile and laughter. She and members of her family were busy remodeling a restaurant her grandparents once owned in Bryan.

So far, no official word on how Armstrong died, but police have called it a homicide.
