A young mayor and her husband were shot dead in Veracruz, another mayor murdered in Michoacan

Two Mayors killed, one in Veracruz and one in Michoacan.  100 mayors have been killed in Mexico since 2006. Veracruz mayor offered 30,000 pesos not to take office.

Veracruz: 

The mayor of Mixtla de Altamirano,  Maricela Vallejo Orea, was murdered on Wednesday along with her husband and her driver, reports the authorities of the Mexican state of  Veracruz .

Vallejo, of the ruling National Regeneration Movement (Morena), her husband and her driver were shot dead around 9:00 p.m. (02:00 GMT) on the Zongolica-Orizaba highway in the Sierra de Zongolica.

The mayor and her companions traveled in a van that was intercepted by the occupants of another vehicle that repeatedly shot them,  explained the authorities.

All three died at the scene, where federal, state and municipal authorities have deployed a strong security operation.


Last January, Vallejo was one of the main speakers during the presentation of the comprehensive Zero Tolerance to Violence against Women and Girls strategy in the Mexican state of Veracruz.

In that speech, on behalf of the municipal authorities, she proposed the creation of the Directorate of Prevention and Attention to Violence against Women in each municipality, where specialists can deal with each case.

During the 2017 electoral process in that municipality there were two deaths and three wounded in confrontations between supporters of Morena and the PRI.

In December of that same year, the mayor had denounced death threats against her and even revealed that she had been offered an offer to give him 300,000 pesos (about 15,789 dollars) so that she would not take office.

Michoacan: 

On Tuesday, mayor, David Eduardo Otlica Avilés, of the municipality of Nahuatzen, in the state of Michoacán (west), was assassinated. The politician was kidnapped in the morning and in the afternoon he was found dead.

More than a hundred mayors have been killed in Mexico since 2006 in the midst of violence linked to organized crime , according to data from the National Association of Mayors.

  1. People Elected or candidates can't be out on the roads at any time, specially not at 9:00 pm without armed guards. Not because of fear but as a security measure, and it goes for everybody else.

She advocated against violence and died a violent death.It's a lot different then living by the sword and dying by the sword.So sad.She was offered silver but given lead.That's sure a lot of Mayors 100.I'm surprised that anyone wants to run except the bad ones that take the silver and let the town go to shit.

    1. Political killings are norm in Mexico.
      A dear friend of mine had to leave to California due to the threats with his family 15 years ago. Despite his courageous efforts not to succumb to threats he knew protection from authorities were futile.
      Who can one turn to if everyone is on the take or afraid!

    2. E42. In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum-security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem... if no one else can help... and if you can find them... maybe you can hire... The A-Team.

    3. 11:57 AMLO is not driving the killing, he is trying to control and drive the numbers down efficiently, but he is no mother fairy to fix it by spreading his fairy powders around, you could do that for him, will you? It may even work...

      Then he should arrest those crooked judges who release these individuals.
      Its simple; either shoot these bastards or keep them locked up (reffernce to those criminals). Its constituents are of value not those criminals.

  10. In Nahuatzén, Michoacan it was a murder set up by the mayor’s wife and her step father. It was not related to politics or narcos!
