Mexican Journalist's Bullet-Riddled Body Found

Mexican Journalist's Bullet-Riddled Body Found

Twenty-eight-year-old Journalist Alberto Lopez was covering crime and corruption in Oaxaca, Mexico. Apparently he was covering it too well. His bullet riddled body was found Wednesday in a corn field in the village of Trinidad de Viguera alongside another victim identified as Arturo Alejandro Franco. 

According to the Associated Press, Lopez’ publication is outraged over the assassination:  

El Imparcial newspaper condemned the killing of reporter Alberto Lopez, who was found Wednesday along with another unidentified man on a street in Oaxaca City.

The daily demanded authorities conduct a thorough investigation and find those responsible for the slaying in a two-paragraph statement posted on its website.

Officials confirmed Lopez’s body was found but wouldn’t say how he was killed or why.

Oaxaca state has remained mostly free of drug-related violence that has affected other areas of Mexico, where journalists have been targeted.

The National Human Rights Commission says at least 84 journalists have been killed in Mexico since 2000.
