Widow wants suburban mayor's death probe reopened

Posted: Updated:

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The widow of a South Texas mayor whose death police blamed on an aggressive donkey wants his body exhumed and an inquest performed in his death.

The Atascosa County Sheriff's Office had said the death of Hollywood Park Mayor William "Bill" Bohlkewas apparently accidental, blaming it on the 500-pound stud donkey.

However, Toni Bohlke says she suspects her 65-year-old husband's death was a homicide and wants an autopsy performed on his body. Bohlke was a retired Air Force pilot and was buried in Fort Sam Houston National Hospital.

State District Judge Laura Salinas has agreed to order the exhumation, but an Atascosa County justice of the peace must still order an inquest before the body can be exhumed.
