“Few leads in killings of Mexican singers”

Sergio Gomez

Hijacked by armed men after leaving the stadium early Sunday in Morelia, the capital of Mexico’s violence-plagued Michoacan state, Sergio Gomez was tortured — his genitals burned and his body badly beaten — and then strangled, investigators said. His body was found Monday……………Authorities also appear to have no new leads, and have made no arrests, in the Saturday slaying of singer Zayda Peña in the border city of Matamoros, across the Rio Grande from Brownsville.

The style of Peña’s death also screams gangland — an assassin shot her dead in a hospital after she was shot and wounded Friday night. But investigators have said the crime also could be one of passion, perhaps involving an affair with a female friend………..More than a dozen Mexican singers and musicians, most of whom perform variations of the polka-style music popular in northern and western Mexico, have been slain execution-style in the last two years. None of the killings has been solved. [Houston Chronicle]
