Another journalist was killed in Mexico making it the 6th thus far this year. Reporter Hugo Olivera’s body was found in his pickup truck in Apatzingan, Michoacan. He worked for La Voz de Michoacan and his family newspaper El Dia de Michoacan. Thus far there are no suspects but the drug cartel, La Familia which has a stronghold in the state, is suspected.
Olivera had filed a complaint last year, to the Human Rights Commission, alleging police brutal. The matter was still under investigation when he was killed. After his body was found it was discovered that several items had been taken from his press office, including hard drives from office computers.
