Texas has something called dram shop law. It basically says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Despite the help this can bring for families and the security it can bring to communities by holding those negligent businesses accountable, it's not the kind of thing authorities look into that often. Maybe nothing like that happened here, but that lack of evidence shouldn't be for lack of effort to thoroughly investigate what all happened here. If nothing else, folks deserve to know they're getting the full story.
