Radio HRN, Cablevisión del Atlántico
December 28, 2010, in La Masica, Honduras
Suazo, correspondent for Tegucigalpa-based Radio HRN and news presenter for Cablevisión del Atlántico, was shot as he was leaving his home, according to news reports. Two unidentified assailants fired multiple times and then fled on bicycles.
Suazo covered a variety of topics in the towns of San Juan Pueblo and La Masica. He had been threatened in the past, the Tegucigalpa-based daily El Heraldo reported, although the nature of the threats was unclear.
Motive Unconfirmed: CPJ is investigating to determine whether the death was work-related.
