At 1:30 p.m. local time, several armed men shot at Ramirez as he was driving after leaving his home. As a result of this attack, his car crashed near the town of Agua Blanca.
"Ramirez was a journalist for almost 3 decades and worked in media such as Periodico Central. In 2018 he worked at the Tehuacan Mayor's Office and recently practiced as a lawyer," the NGO Article 19 recalled and demanded that the Puebla Prosecutor's Office investigate his murder through the protocol used in cases of crimes against freedom of expression
With the murder of Ramirez, the number of Mexican journalists who have lost their lives so far this year rises to three. On May 11, Gerardo Torres, who was a correspondent for Reuters and TV Azteca, was also shot to death in Acapulco, in the state of Guerrero.
Today at noon — In April 2012, yet another Mexican journalist was found dead. The message became clear: No journalist in Mexico is safe. @kathycorcoran troubled by the conclusion the police came to about the murder, elected to do her own investigationhttps://t.co/spRhTWSjsX
