A JOURNALIST was found stabbed to death in the northern Mexico city of Ciudad Acuna on Tuesday.
The Article 19 press freedom group called on authorities today to investigate whether Saul Tijerina Renteria, who reported for online news outlets including La Voz, was killed because of his reporting.
Mr Tijerina Renteria is the fourth journalist killed in Mexico so far this year.
La Voz reported that he went missing after leaving his other job at a maquiladora assembly plant in the pre-dawn hours on Tuesday. He was later found stabbed to death in the boot of a car.
Journalists in provincial Mexico often have other jobs due to low pay in the industry.
La Voz quoted Coahuila state police as saying that two suspects had been found with a knife and had been detained in connection with the killing.
Last week, reporter Gustavo Sanchez Cabrera was shot to death in the southern state of Oaxaca, and another journalist was killed just west of Mexico City.
Press groups say that nine journalists were killed in Mexico in 2020, making it the most dangerous place for reporters outside of war zones.
