Jose Eduardo Moreira Rodriquez, 28, was shot and killed in Acuna Coahuila tonight at around 9:15PM on the road to Santa Eulalia. Also known as “Lalo”, he is the son of Humberto Moreira, the former Governor of Coahuila and federal PRI party president. Lalo’s uncle is the governor of Coahuila.
According to a statement released by Daniel Pinal, Humberto Moreira, the former governor wrote: "They killed my son, Jose Eduardo, a young clean, social promoter who used to work with the most humble people of Acuña, Coahuila".
My foundation had the opportunity to work with Lalo after the floods from hurricane Alex, and I found him to be a sincere, dedicated, compassionate person. He was married in 2010 in Acuna and had a baby son, born this year and who is the first grandchild of Humberto Moreira, who attended the birth.
This because the state police killed one of his nephews yesterday in Piedras Negras, after a confrontation in which four people died.
Today 10.5.12 reports are surfacing that Lalo was kidnapped earlier in the day, killed in an unknown location, though a good guess would be the rugged terrain of Santa Eulalia, then transporting the body back to be dumped in or adjacent to Acuna. Santa Eulalia is the area behind Acuna that is used for off road ATV riding and hunting.
