Journalists were killed, killing a second person in a week in Tijuana, a border city in northern Mexico, and a third person in Mexico this month.

According to a statement from the Baja California Public Prosecutor’s Office, Lourdes Maldonado Lopez was found shot dead in the car. Authorities received a 911 call around 7 pm and found Maldonado dead on arrival.

In 2019, Maldonado came to President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s daily morning press conference to seek his support, support and labor justice. “Because I’m afraid of my life,” she said.

Maldonado was trapped in a long-standing labor dispute with Jaime Bonilla, who was elected Governor of Baja California as a candidate for the Morena Party of Lopez Obrador later that year. He resigned late last year.

Maldonad recently announced that he had won a dispute with a media company owned by Bonilla after a nine-year proceeding.

Maldonado has worked with many outlets, but recently has been doing the internet, radio and television show “Brevaje” with a focus on local news.

Last Monday, photographer Margarito Martinez was shot outside his home. He was well known for covering the crime scene in Tijuana, which is plagued by violence. He worked not only in the local press, Cadena Noticias, but also in other national and international media.
