Suspect in Mexican Activist’s Murder Dies in Shootout with Police

MEXICO CITY – Juan Antonio Alvarado Lopez, one of the suspects in the murder of activist Miriam Rodriguez Martinez, died in a shootout with police over the weekend in San Fernando, a city in the northeastern Mexican state of Tamaulipas, officials said.

“After repelling an attack against them, state police and investigators managed to capture four members of a criminal organization, probably dedicated to kidnapping and extortion,” the Tamaulipas Attorney General’s Office said in a statement.

In the shootout, “Juan Antonio Alvarado Lopez, alias ‘Alushe,’ identified as one of the material authors of the death of Mrs. Miriam Elizabeth Rodriguez Martinez and considered one of the most-wanted individuals of the justice system, died,” the AG’s office said.

Police on patrol Sunday in San Fernando spotted Alvarado Lopez, who was the subject of an arrest warrant for the May 10 murder of Rodriguez Martinez.

Alvarado Lopez was pronounced dead at the scene and another gunman was wounded, the AG’s office said, adding that officers arrested three other suspects at a house.

Alvarado Lopez was one of four men allegedly involved in the activist’s killing at her house, a case that sparked outrage among human rights groups both in Mexico and abroad.
