Marcelo Tejero Ocampo, a 64-year-old radio journalist, was found dead the morning of Sept. 7 in his home in the town of Carmen in the state of Campeche, reported El Universal.

According to Tribuna, his mouth was gagged but there were no other signs of violence. Some valuable items were missing from his house, so authorities believe Tejero was robbed, and the gagging caused him to suffocate.
