Owner and editor of a regional daily in the state of Veracruz, Gibb Guerrero was gunned down April 8 after receiving several death threats for stories about drug smugglers' links to the government. The state's organized-crime prosecutor said that the journalist had "written directly about the (drug) cartel ... and the whole corruption network they have." Gibb Guerrero was 53.
