Visión Informativa
March 12, 2010, in Chilpancingo, Mexico

Pacheco's body was found along a rural road in the Guerrero state capital of Chilpancingo with five gunshot wounds, one to the head, according to news reports citing law enforcement officials.

Pacheco, 33, a reporter for the weekly Visión Informativa, was the second journalist murdered in as many months in Guerrero, a southern Pacific coast state with strategic transit points and agricultural land used by drug cartels. Albertico Guinto Sierra, acting state attorney general, told CPJ that investigators had not identified a motive or suspects.

Motive Unconfirmed: CPJ is investigating to determine whether the death was work-related.
