Husband of Donna Mayor Dead From Apparent Suicide

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.

  1. Condolences from the Cázares family! We pray that God be with the Muñoz family and to please spare them anymore unessesary pain! God bless you all in this somber moment!

  2. To anyone who has ill will to speak about my sister Irene know this!!! My sister has struggled all her life to get where she is. Our siblings were subjected to some of the worst abuse. As a result, some of our siblings made some bad choices and still remain individuals of poor character. Only a handful of us made a choice long ago not to succum to our circumstances. Irene is one such person. I am a retired Military service member and can tell you we may have members within our own family who are bad apples but Irene is not one of them. Thank you.
