Another Journalist Slain in Mexico

MEXICO CITY – A reporter who covered the crime beat for a news website in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur was killed on Friday, his editors said.

Maximino Rodriguez Palacios is the fourth journalist murdered in Mexico since the beginning of March.

The website he wrote for, Colectivo Pericu, said the killing took place in the parking lot of a store a shop in La Paz, the state capital.

Rodriguez, whose wife uses a wheelchair, had just parked their vehicle in one of the spots reserved for handicapped people when several gunmen traveling in a pick-up truck opened fire, the website said.

The reporter’s wife was not hurt in the attack.

Colectivo Pericu demanded that authorities make greater efforts to solve “this and many other murders that remain unpunished and have left families devastated.”

The slaying of Max Rodriguez follows the killings last month of Cecilio Pineda, in the southern state of Guerrero; Ricardo Monlui, in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz; and Miroslava Breach, in Chihuahua state, bordering Texas.

Rodriguez is also the 124th media professional killed in Mexico since the year 2000, according to figures compiled by the independent National Human Rights Commission.
