Elderly Tivoli man killed by bees
Houston Chronicle, The Associated Press, Sept. 16, 2009

TIVOLI, Texas — An elderly man from Tivoli (ty-VOH'-lee) died after
being attacked by a swarm of bees while mowing the lawn of an
abandoned house near his home.

Justice of the Peace Lorraine Lopez identified the victim of Tuesday
afternoon's attack as 81-year-old Amador Villarreal. Lopez says
Villarreal died after being stung on his head and upper body.

Refugio (ray-FYOO'-ee-oh) County Sheriff Robert Bolcik (BOWL'-chik)
said a crew would be dispatched to kill the insects believed to be
so-called Africanized bees.

Tivoli is about 60 miles northeast of Corpus Christi.
