"Proceso" reporter murdered in Veracruz

Terrible news for investigative reporting in Mexico: Regina Martínez, a veteran reporter of 30 years, and with Proceso the past 10, was found murdered in Veracruz. She is the fourth journalist murdered in the state in the last year and a half.

It has been a while since the recognized news magazine Proceso stopped using the names of reporters in bylines in many narco stories, and the reason is unfortunately very clear: They have now become targets of organized crime.

  1. Info available todate points more to a crime of passion, or some such nonsense, than a narco hit.
    I doubt the truth will come out.
