Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico - On Saturday, the State Attorney General's Office reported the discovery of a female body that was decapitated at the Cristóbal Colón Monument. Police investigators responded to a call at 7:45 a.m. about a body that had been dumped at the monument site.
The woman was identified a María Elizabeth Macías Castro, 39, an administrative staffer (editor of information) at the Nuevo Laredo Primera Hora newspaper. Her body was found on the grass section and her head was place on top of a round cement ball, so that early commuters could notice the gruesome scene at the Madero neighborhood.
Castro was last seen on Friday afternoon when she left the newspaper, according to police.
A sign placed next to the body said, that Castro was killed for posting messages about drug trafficking and criminal activity in the area. The message warned others about placing messages on social networks and the Internet, including webpages the "Nuevo Laredo en Vivo" and "Denuncias Cuidadana."
Castro used the alias name of Nena de Nuevo Laredo to post messages. Authorities are unsure how the killer or killers discovered who she was and then murdered her. Police believe the Zetas were connected to the homicide.
Eleven days ago, police found two bodies hanging from Los Mayas pedestrian bridge near the airport. A 28-year-old woman and 25-year-old man were tortured and killed for posting alerts about criminal activity in the city on the following blogs, "Blog del Narco" and "Al Rojo Vivo."
