Two anonymous sources close to the situation have tipped The Bench Wire off of the apparent suicide of the husband of Irene Muñoz, Mayor of Donna. The incident allegedly occurred sometime yesterday morning at Mayor Muñoz’ residence.
Details are scarce however the report so far is that her husband was armed with a gun and threatened to harm her. Mayor Muñoz subsequently attempted to dial 911 and it was at this point where Mr. Muñoz turned the gun to himself and fired. Two of their children (in their early 20’s) were also apparently present.
According to one source, Mayor Muñoz and her husband had been separated and planned to file for divorce.
