El Sol de la Costa
January 29, 2010, in Ayutla de los Libres, Mexico
Ochoa, an editor and publisher in Guerrero state, was shot after leaving a birthday party for a local politician, local reporters told CPJ. Ochoa owned El Sol de la Costa, a small-circulation weekly based in Ayutla de los Libres.
María del Carmen Castro, Ochoa's widow, told local reporters that her husband had recently received cell phone threats. In March, police arrested a suspect who had been involved in a traffic dispute with Ochoa, said Albertico Guinto Sierra, acting state attorney general of Guerrero.
Motive Unconfirmed: CPJ is investigating to determine whether the death was work-related.
