Hitman responsible for Photojournalist's death found Beheaded
The alleged murderer of a reporter for the Diario de Juarez, was executed and beheaded in Juarez on Saturday.
His attackers left his head on the roof of a white Altima with a copy of El Diario's newspaper displayed on the vehicle's dash. The victim's body was found inside the vehicle.
Police who responded to the scene said the message was clear that the suspect is the one who attacked two journalists from El Diario de Juarez, since the head was next to the Friday edition which reported the execution of Luis Carlos Santiago, a young photojournalist from same newspaper.
The Federal Police Bomb Unit was also called to the scene of the crime. Although the unit evacuated the area and reportedly performed an exhaustive search of the vehicle, it has not been confirmed whether explosives were found.
