Journalist found dead in 'pool of blood' at home in northern Mexico

A female journalist was found dead Thursday at her home in Monterrey, northern Mexico, having apparently been severely beaten, according to law enforcement sources.

Alicia Diaz Gonzalez "was on the floor, face down, in a pool of blood having suffered blows," a source from the Nuevo Leon state prosecutor's office told AFP on condition of anonymity.

The 52-year-old reporter's death was confirmed by El Financiero newspaper, where she had worked since January. Editor Mauricio Mejia called for an "urgent ... official response" to the death on social media.

The source added Diaz was found by her son.

Authorities have not established a motive for the crime. Diaz's colleagues told AFP they reported on local business activity and financial issues, but denied they worked with "sensitive" information.

Last week, journalist Juan Carlos Huerta was shot dead as he left his home in a suburb of Villahermosa in southeast Mexico.

His murder took place one year after Javier Valdez, who received international recognition for his coverage of drug trafficking, was gunned down in broad daylight in his native Culiacan, Sinaloa, where powerful cartels operate.

Mexico is considered one of the most dangerous countries in the world to be a journalist, with more than 100 reporters killed since 2000. Most of those crimes remain unpunished.

 
Sorry but the period of time connection to the operation is exceeded.
