Chihuahua Reporter Executed Only Weeks After Launching New Website

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat
 
On December of 2012, the reporter and general director of the digital newspaper  www.ojinaganoticias.com.mx published he felt happy and very optimistic about 2013.
 
“Well people, I feel happy and cheerful because I think that this year comes strong in my goals that I’ve been wanting to achieve and with all the effort in the world, I have achieved them, thanks to all the people that read the digital newspaper”.  Jaime Gonzales Dominguez
So wrote Jaime, who officially launched the newest Ojinafa news website on February 18th.
Two weeks later, on  March 3rd, Jaime Gonzalez Dominguez, 38, became the first journalist killed during the presidency of Enrique Peña Nieto.  Jaime was executed around  6:30 pm at the intersection of Trasviña and Retes Street, downtown of Ojinaga, Chihuahua. Previously the site was named ojinaganews.com.mx
The journalist was accompanied by a woman, who wasn’t injured and according to witnesses the sicarios took the reporters camera with them when they left.

Carlos Gonzalez, spokesman of the General Prosecutor of the State (FGE), reported investigators discovered at the scene 17 shell casings of caliber 5.77 x 38 known as “cop killers”,  for the ability to penetrate bullet proof vest protectors.
Jaime Guadalupe had two Facebook accounts, in one he used his name and the account was used to give information of the community and merchants. The other account was OjinagaNews Jaime, and on that account, he announced the launching of the printed version of the newspaper with general news “Ojinaganews.com.mx
Jaime wrote this entry about his new venture; 
 “With the good news that if it is God’s design,  next week comes out the first edition of the printed newspaper of ojinaganews, with God’s will and thanks to you all that are making it possible because you are the ones that give me the energy to KEEP GOING forward with the information and to have you guys informed of the events of Ojinaga, its beautiful region Presidio and Midland,  ‘THANK YOU A LOT’ FOR YOUR SUPPORT, WHICH I WOULD HOPE THE SAME FOR THE PRINTED NEWSPAPER, TO OFFER YOU THE BEST OF THE INFORMATION AND OF ME”, he added.
Identifying the motive behind the execution is cloudy.  Especially since the reporting by Jaime was seemingly that of commerce and city events.  However one can reach a logical conclusion that perhaps Jaime was providing information to a party that his executioners wanted stopped.  The fact that the sicarios absconded with the camera strongly supports such a theory.   
 
The Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights condemned the crime.
"The Rapporteur expresses its concern and calls Mexican authorities to act with expediency to identify the motives behind the crime and use all the judicial instruments at its disposal to identify and sanction the material and intellectual authors," the Rapporteur said in a press release.

The Knights Center states; Mexico continues to be among the most dangerous countries in the continent for journalists. According to a recent interactive map from the organization Article 19, Chihuahua has been one of the most violent states for journalists in the last twelve years
Below the website announces that this will most likely be the last issue, click image to enlarge.

  3. This might not. be a coincidence. With the return of el PRI in the presidency of Mx.,the attack on journalists has begun in order to intimidate them into self-censorship. The newspaper el Siglo de Torreon received numerous attacks and bomb threats. Its been business as usual in Mx., whether it be PAN or PRI in power.

  8. My god,they are only hurting Mexico,that's what they are hurting the most,Mexico.If there are no reporters to spread news about,its another kind of impunity that you create.Impunity to do whatever you like and it will not be reported anywhere.How can you blame a man or woman reporter for not reporting things in Mexico when they are fair game for any dog with a gun,right now they are killed without consequence,its a litany of base disgusting behavior after another.
    Where are the authorities to stop all this shit,women,journalists,children,its fuckin madness,and they are only hurting Mexico all the time

  9. Fucking cartels. They never give up. Those reporters should have weapons just like in that movie when we were soldiers. Even though that guy wasnt in the army. Sergeant major didnt care. Thats how they need to do it. Fuck those narcos down. And fuck wat the music says. We the people support the army or marines. Well some of us.

  14. Without doing any research, just by reading what this article says I get the impression that someone in the newspaper business doesn't like competition. Selling newspapers is big business everywhere. Someone felt threatened by what he was doing and decided to get rid of the threat while at the same time making it look like a cartel hit. Just a thought.

  15. My guess the camera would be worth a lot,so if not for the pics and vids within....they got themselves a good camera which they can make executions with.

  16. I dont get it, they kill reporters for reporting what these people do but then they allow corridos that talk baut the game. Sounds stupid me. ..........Fah-Q..........

  17. I own I 5.7x28 pistol and only a certain type of ammo will penetrate the bulletproof vest

  18. He must of told some one he trusted that he had valuable pics he had took....
    That person he trusted probably told him to take the pics to him/her and that person ratted him out to the local cartel for money...
    Now the reporter is dead and they killed the snitch so they wont pay that person.
    Cant trust no one in mexico now a days only your family.

  19. So many of Mexico's best & brightest are just being chewed up in this narco apocalypse at a staggering rate.

    Just snuffed out on the whims of faceless cartel gangsters.

    It's a real tragedy.

    .......................................

    Most of the Emails revolved about life in O.J.
    that sort of thing, never spoke with him or asked him about any narconews.
    Most was where are you off to now, since his page was full of pics of Quinceaneras and weddings in the little pueblitos such as El Mulato, and surrounding areas.
    I wont speculate. O.J. is a very small town and
    once a rumour starts you cant defend it, too many loose tongues not tied to the truth.
    There was something in that Camara, but I dont believe it was intentional, more than likely he filmed something by accident and someone did not like it. O.J. is really a paranoid place right now.

  26. So sad...he sounded so optimistic about his new paper. God bless him and his loved ones. There is no hell hot enough for murderous scumbags like whoever did this ( and the 1000s of other innocents murdered) in the name of crime.
