Journalist Slain in Northeastern Mexico

MEXICO CITY – Mexican daily Excelsior said on Tuesday that one of its correspondents was murdered in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas.

Hector Gonzalez was found dead in Ciudad Victoria, the state capital, Excelsior said, citing sources from the Tamaulipas Attorney General’s Office.

According to a statement from prosecutors, the journalist was “beaten to death.”

Authorities have launched an investigation into the motives of the crime and to find the perpetrators, the newspaper said.

Last Thursday, journalist Alicia Diaz, 52, was found dead at her home in Monterrey, in the northern state of Nuevo Leon, after receiving a blow in the head.

According to press freedom organization Article 19, since the start of President Enrique Peña Nieto’s administration in 2012, 42 journalists have been murdered in Mexico, while nearly 2,000 attacks against journalists have been recorded.
