Cootie Brown
of Navarro County, Texas

From the description in the articles, I would assume
Cootie Brown is most likely a 3 toed box turtle as pictured
above [photo is not Cootie].  Since these turtles are native
to Navarro county, and can live over 100 years it is possible that Cootie
could still be out there somewhere !

Note:  April would be about when turtles come out
of brumation which is the reptile version of hibernation
