ALBUQUERQUE (AP) -- Albuquerque mayoral candidate Pete Dinelli is calling for the appointment of a special prosecutor and a grand jury investigation of the death of prominent civil rights attorney Mary Han.
The call by Dinelli and Han's family comes after Attorney General Gary King last week issued a scathing critique of the Albuquerque Police Department's handling of the case.
Family and friends have questioned the handling of Han's 2010 death ever since Albuquerque police quickly ruled it a suicide.
Han was a vocal adversary of the Police Department, and her family believes officers failed to look at other explanations.
Han was found dead in the driver's seat of her BMW inside her garage.
