ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Was the owner of the City Museum murdered?

Bob Cassilly was found dead five years ago at his art exhibit called Cementland. Police ruled it an accident, but his wife's attorney continues to question that conclusion.  

For the past five years Cassilly's wife has been in and out of court. During these proceedings, her attorney, Al Watkins, says they found some questionable evidence. Now they want St. Louis County police to investigate Cassilly's death.

City police investigated and determined Cassilly died when his bulldozer overturned. Police, along with the medical examiner, ruled his death an accident and closed the case.

But Watkins had another medical professional take a look at the pictures from the scene. He claims those prove Cassilly was murdered.

Watkins said, "There is always a desire on the part of victims to have closure. You haven't had closure when you have irreconcilable factual evidence that quite frankly doesn't support the proposition that Bob Cassilly died in a bulldozer rollover accident."

News 4 talked to the city's medical examiner. He says all evidence supports their findings, that it was an accident.  County police say are not investigating Cassilly's death.
