Unidentified gunmen ambushed the on-line editor of “A Discusión” and presenter of Radio Fórmula Humberto Millán along with his brother in Sinaloa.

Millán’s brother was released soon after the confusing incident where gunmen in pickup trucks ambushed the pair and abducted them.

The body of Millán was just found near a farm called “La Cochera” located in Campo Morelia,  Culiacán.

Millán died of a single shot to the head. His body was found face down and with the same clothes he was kidnapped on; the body showed signs of torture.

Federal police are rounding up elements for a search operative to find whoever is behind the death of Millán, who reportedly avoided working on organized crime issues.

According to the International Press Institute, seven Mexican journalists have been murdered since the start of 2011. Only Iraq, with eight, has seen more journalists’ deaths this year.
