She was a woman who knew too much and paid the price. The Mexican woman was employed in a newspaper office and, her postings on a social networking website brought about her death – she was decapitated and her head was placed alongside her body by her killers. The incident happened in Nuevo Laredo, located in northern Tamaulipas state. It is presumed to be another drug land murder.

The woman was not a reporter as such, she held an administrative post – but she used to post information on the local social networking website about drug rings under a pseudonym of ‘Laredo Girl’. The message she had last posted was about the Zeta gang which is supposed to be the most powerful drug cartel in Mexico. The gang was setup by a deserter from the military and is known for its mass killings and gruesome executions.
