Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War

Mexican Mayor-Elect Shot to Death

Sunday, August 12, 2012 |

Police say gunmen have shot down the mayor-elect of a town in San Luis Potosi state and a campaign adviser while they were riding in a vehicle with another person. 

The local public safety secretary says Matehuala Mayor-elect Edgar Morales Perez and aide Francisco Hernandez Colunga were returning from a birthday party when they were ambushed early Sunday in the town. Hernandez Colunga's wife was also in the car but survived the attack. The assailants remain at large.

Morales Perez had belonged to the Institutional Revolutionary Party, which regained the country's presidency last month. He was scheduled to take office in September. The National Action Party had governed Matehuala for years before his electoral win.

A car filled with 14 corpses was found Thursday by a gas station along a highway in San Luis Potosi state.

Did you ever think that maybe he was the type who was "sympathetic" to the opposing cartels, accepted their bribes, and that is why he was killed?

And no matter how you skin the cat all things of any importance are narco related. Think of them like how the Corporations are in 'Murica, they have an influence at all levels and generally influence everything we do and touch.
