Hanging on a tree and with a plastic bag on her head, Anabel Flores, a journalist from Veracruz was found on kilometer 580 of the road from Cuacnopalan to Oaxaca, in the State of Puebla, in central Mexico. She had been abducted by armed men who stormed her house, early morning on February 9th.
Puebla State Attorney officials found the body and reported it to Veracruz Authorities, Anabel Flores is the fifteenth dead journalist during Governor Javier Duarte’s administration, three more have disappeared and are most likely dead.
During his administration, governor Duarte has been hardly criticized by many journalists who “coincidentally” have ended up dead, and either the State or Federal Governments have not been able to solve any of these crimes.
The murdered journalists from Veracruz are: Noel López Olguín, Miguel Ángel López Velasco, Misael López Solana, Yolanda Ordaz de la Cruz, Regina Martínez Pérez, Guillermo Luna Varela, Gabriel Huge Córdova, Esteban Rodríguez Rodríguez, Ana Irasema Becerra Jiménez, Víctor Manuel Báez Chino, Miguel Morales Estrada, Sergio Landa Rosales, Gregorio Jiménez de la Cruz, Octavio Rojas Hernández, Moisés Sánchez Cerezo, Armando Saldaña Morales, Juan Mendoza Delgado, Rubén Espinosa.
Fifteen dead journalists in only one Mexican State, authorities have blamed the murders on drug dealers and personal problems, the fact of the matter is that many journalists have fled the State of Veracruz fearing for their lives, and in some cases (such as the case of Ruben Espinoza), he was “mysteriously” killed along with four more innocent people, even when he tried to escape from the death threats moving to Mexico City. Veracruz has become the most dangerous State for Mexican Journalism.
