The journalist for a local radio was shot dead outside his home in the Mexican district of Chihuahua. According to media reports, Samaniego worked in his station’s political service and at times was a crime reporter, which he used to be when he investigated drug traffic. His last investigations on record concerned the alleged torture of two indigenous brothers who were accused of attacking a governmental caravan in 2009.
