Another eerily similar tragedy has hit the Mexican actor and singer Pablo Montero – another brother brutally murdered in Torreon.

Mexican authorities are reporting that the 45-year-old brother of Montero, Javier Hernandez Rodriguez, was killed when he was stabbed multiple times in the chest and abdomen.  His body was found on the side of the road next to a woman who was seriously injured.  The bodies were found the morning of June 12th around 1:45 a.m. near a busy city center.

This is the second such tragedy to befall this popular entertainer.  Almost three years ago, in 2010, his 35-year-old brother Oliver Hernandez Rodriguez was shot to death in his car after being pursued by armed gunmen also in Torreon Coahuila, Mexico.

Montero, whose real name is Oscar Daniel Hernandez Rodriguez, was born and raised in Torreon, Coahuila.  The 38-year-old has produced over 10 albums and most recently was seen in the “Que Bonito Amor” telenovela. 

No arrests have been made in both crimes.  Coahuila is in the midst of a violent and often-deadly cartel war dominated by the Los Zetas fighting to keep this lucrative drug trafficking corridor.
