On Friday July 5, 1935 Mrs. Frank Doyle found a suicide note left by her sister, Louise Ford Davis, who resided at the Melrose Court Hotel. Mrs. Doyle immediately alerted the police, who sent seven squad cars racing to White Rock Lake in hopes of preventing a tragedy. But they were too late. Detective Bryan who was driving along the Garland road, turned on to the lake road at East Lawther Drive and shortly afterward saw Mrs. Davis' head bobbing in the water.

It was estimated that she had been in the lake five minutes when detective Bryan dragged her to shore. Although artificial respiration was attempted to revive Mrs. Davis, it was in vain and police remarked that if they had been called only two or three minutes sooner they might have saved her. The woman's car was parked nearby, where they found a sheet and a pair of white gloves on the car seat. However there was no mention of what she was wearing and the contents of the suicide note were not revealed. After a Saturday funeral service in Dallas, Mrs. Davis' body was taken to Albany, Texas for burial.

It is said she is the Lady of White Rock Lake...
