Digna Ochoa investigation closed

Digna Ochoa was a human rights defender who died ten years ago, on Oct. 19 2001, in Mexico City. While it was ruled a suicide, her backers strongly rejected this - and pointed out that, incredulously, she would have had to shoot herself twice to achieve this: The autopsy found two 22-caliber bullet wounds. She had a lot of enemies, was kidnapped twice, and at one point went into exile in the U.S.

Many investigations followed, all inconclusive, and now the Mexico City Attorney general officially closed the investigation, Milenio reports. It had been reopened in 2010 on her family's request.

To many people today, Digna Ochoa's death was not a suicide - it was a murder.
