Note: Like anything we report, this news has not been offically confirmed and is presented only for information purposes.
Blog Del Narco is reporting that the administrator of the Mexican narco blog "Mundo Narco" was killed by sicarios at his home. The victim was identified as Luis Gustavo Hernandez Bocanegra, 27 years of age, originally from Culiacan, Sinaloa. According to reports heavily armed men arrived at the home of the victim and shot him in front of his family. The gunmen managed to flee undetected.
According to witnesses, several men knocked at the home of the victim, who opened the door and told his family to leave to another room. The wife of the victim then heard numerous gunshots.
The victim sustained numerous gunshots in the face. Authorities found spent casings at the home from a .40 and 9mm firearms. The family of Luis Gustavo said that he had received threats for providing information on his blog, Mundo Narco. This supposedly occurred on August 28, 2012.
The last entry on the blog was on August 27, 2012 where he reported on several narco banners that were put up by the Sinaloa Cartel and were directed at El Mencho of the CJNG.
It appears that the story of Mundo Narco might be a hoax. The incident did occur, but there is no evidence that it was the administrator of Mundo Narco. There was a lapse time in an absence of reporting from Mundo Narco that corresponded with the news, and that added a degree in the potential of the validity, but at this point, it looks like Mundo Narco is posting again.
Also there is no evidence that it was reported in BDN but in the clone which may not be associated with BDN. I posted this information for its value at the period it was found and I attached a disclaimer as the news was shady and not confirmed, but our readers needed to know it was there. The mystery may be partially resolved, but with news coming out of Mexico being so shady, one just never knows..
