Arrest made in death of Denton activist

10:16 AM CDT on Friday, June 22, 2007

Police on Friday arrested the brother of a Denton peace activist who was found dead overnight in Flower Mound with a gunshot wound to the head, a police spokesman said.

Mr. Honish had been shot in the head. Investigators do not believe it was a suicide.

Mark Francis Honish, 44, of Trophy Club was taken into custody Friday morning, Officer Paul Boon said.

A police officer on routine patrol found David Honish, 52, dead in his white Ford F-150 pickup truck around 11 p.m. Thursday. The engine was still running.

Mr. Honish was the “main motivator” for the North Texas Veterans for Peace, which often gathered on an overpass near the University of North Texas campus, said Bernie Jezercak, the group’s financial officer.

“He was a very fine individual,” said Mr. Jezercak, who had known Mr. Honish for about six years. “He was usually our front man.”

The group last met Memorial Weekend, and Mr. Honish was there as always, he said.

“He was his usual jovial and insightful self,” said Mr. Jezercak, who added that Mr. Honish was known to be opinionated.

“He wasn’t afraid to shock people into paying attention to what’s going on,” he said. “He wasn’t disrespectful or aggressive. But he was willing to make a statement.”

Dan Burnam, the coordinator for Peace Activist Denton, said Mr. Honish was not a member of the Denton group, but that they met for the first time in 2003 at a demonstration and had reconnected at several "Peace actions” in the past few years.

In October, Mr. Honish was among about 40 people who took part in a demonstration against torture and the war in Iraq outside the office of U.S. Rep. Michael Burgess in Lewisville. They were part of the local version of "The World Can't Wait" campaign, a North American movement protesting the policies of the Bush administration.

Mr. Burnam said he received an e-mail from Mr. Honish on Wednesday with the subject line “Reasons not to re-enlist” and that had talked about opening a gun range with his brother.

“I don’t know that much about David’s personal, private life,” Mr. Burnam said. “It’s kind of bizarre he died in a gun accident.”

Highway 377 at FM 1171 was closed in both directions early Friday during the police investigation.
