Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Mexican journalist who told president she feared for her life shot dead”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Journalist Lourdes Maldonado López was killed in the Mexican border city of Tijuana on Sunday, days after news photographer Margarito Martínez was gunned down at his home there.

According to local news reports, Maldonado was found dead of one gunshot inside a car outside her home.

She had recently won a labor lawsuit against news outlet Primer Sistema de Noticias and its owner, Jaime Bonilla, the former governor of Baja California, the state where Tijuana is located.

Bonilla is a former U.S.-Mexico dual citizen who renounced his U.S. citizenship in 2012 to run for public office in Mexico as an ally of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

Since 2012, Bonilla has served as a member in both houses of Mexico's congress, and as governor of Baja California as a member of López Obrador's National Regeneration Movement party.
