El Imparcial newspaper condemned the killing of reporter Alberto Lopez, who was found Wednesday along with another unidentified man on a street in Oaxaca City.
The daily demanded authorities conduct a thorough investigation and find those responsible for the slaying in a two-paragraph statement posted on its website.
Officials confirmed Lopez’s body was found but wouldn’t say how he was killed or why.
