Transcript Montrose Man Dies in Hanging Houston police officers are seeking to determine if a man found hung in his Montrose home died accidently or as a result of suicide. According to Liz Amora, HPD spokesperson, the body of Billy Dean Ingram was found at the Stratford Place Town Homes, 309 Stratford, at approximately 2:00 a.m., Sept. 29. There was a rope tied around the victim's neck. There was no suicide note and police officials speculate that Ingram's death resulted from "autoeroticism." Police believe Ingram was engaged in a sex act at the time of his death. Dallas Firm Testing Employees for AIDS Enserch Corp., a Dallas-based energy company, has ordered all employees working in food service be tested for the AIDS virus. The AIDS test will be included with other tests for communicable diseases given to job applicants and employees handling food. Dr. Charles Alexander, chief of epidemiology for the Texas Departmentof Health, called the Enserch policy "inane" and compares it to tests for syphillis or turber- culosis for food handlers. These tests have been shown to be "just not worth doing." A spokesman for Enserch said the company adopted the policy after consulting members of the scientific community. The test, known as HTLV-3, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration last spring, primarily to safeguard the nation's blood supply. It detects the presence of antibodies to the virus. Critics argue that the test is inconclusive and will lead to unnecessary discrimination. The Enserch policy is believed to be the first involving the private sector. Therefore, it will be watched closely by gay activists nationwide. 'Slaters' Want Special Listing For the first time in 30 years, a group of candidates for Houston City Council are seeking special designation be added to the ballots next to their names. The eight candidates running under the so-called "Straight Slate" banner are asking City Attorney Jerry Smith to allow the words "Campaign for Houston-Straight Slate" listed next to their names in the Nov. 5 elections. Smith says the group has some rights under the city charter but that he is awaiting the opinions of legal authorities on the legalities of straight-ticket voting for the candidates. The Straight Slate, whose candidates formally filed for the election on Tuesday, is fielding candidates against each city council member who voted for two city ordinances prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in city employment. The ordinances were defeated in a January referendum. The Campaign Houston-Straight Slate candidates seeking at-large positions and the incumbents they face, are Margaret Hotze, opposing Eleanor Tinsley; David Justus, opposing Jim Greenwood; O.J. Striegler, opposing Anthony Hall, and Jim Kennedy against Judson Robinson. In District B, Dr. Leon Spivey is seeking the seat of Ernest McGowen; Charles Carter opposes George Greanias in District C; Jimmy James seeks the seat of Rodney Ellis in District D; and Tom Pohlmann is running against Dale Gorczynski in District H.
