A journalist, his wife, and their 21-year-old son were shot to death inside their home in this Gulf coast city Monday, authorities said.
Journalist Miguel Angel Lopez Velasco and his family were shot with a 9 mm handgun, said Veracruz state prosecutor Jorge Yunis.
Lopez Velasco wrote a column about politics and crime and was editorial director for the daily newspaper Notiver. His son had been working as a photographer for the same newspaper.
Yunis said investigators haven’t determined a motive in the killings and no one has been arrested.
The OPC Freedom of the Press Committee has written a letter to Felipe Calderon of Mexico to end the horrific violence against journalists that has made Mexico
one of the world’s most dangerous countries for the media.
