Leftist Politician, 3 Others Murdered in Southern Mexico

CHILPANCINGO, Mexico Ė Ranferi Hernandez Acevedo, a political leader and founder of the Guerrero state branch of Mexicoís leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), was murdered along with his wife, mother-in-law and driver over the weekend, police said.

Hernandez Acevedo and his party left the town of Ahuacoutzingo around 5:00 pm Saturday for Chilapa, the Guerrero Public Safety Secretariat said.

The political leaderís family contacted police after he and his party failed to arrive at their destination.

Police received a call around midnight Saturday about an SUV that was on fire near Nejapa, a community outside Chilapa, the secretariat said.

The bodies were shown at the crime scene to Ahuacoutzingo official Abel Lopez Rosas, who identified the 50-year-old Hernandez Acevedo, his 50-year-old wife, Lucia Hernandez Dircio, and 94-year-old mother-in-law, Juana Dircio.

Officials did not identify the politicianís driver.

Hernandez Acevedo was murdered on the Chilapa-Ahuacoutzingo highway in central Guerrero, a region that has been plagued by a wave of drug-related violence.

The late politician belonged to a group of former PRD state chairmen who support National Regeneration Movement (MORENA) founder Andres Manuel Lopez Obradorís bid for the presidency in the 2018 elections.

Hernandez Acevedo was one of the most prominent leftist leaders working for social change in Guerrero.
