Ricardo Reyes Zamudio, a Mexican mayoral candidate, had been found dead after he was kidnapped while attending a funeral.
His body was discovered Monday in Tayoltita, a rural mining town in the northwestern state of Durango, riddled in bullet holes.
Zamudio was a member of the leftist Citizen’s Movement party and a candidate for mayor of the northern municipality of San Dimas. He was the third politician to be killed in less than a week, as Mexico prepared for its July 7th elections, the first since last year’s presidential vote.
"The cowardly killer of comrade Reyes is part of an alarming climate of violence and impunity, which seems to be aimed at inspiring terror ... before the elections ," said the Citizen's Movement party in a statement issued after the murder.
