"Journalist María de Lourdes Maldonado López, who was assassinated yesterday outside her home in Tijuana, Baja California, had attended President Andrés Manuel López Obrador's morning press conference [on March 26, 2019] to ask him for help, as she feared for her life.


The Attorney General of the State of Baja California said yesterday that a report was received through an emergency call to 911, saying that a woman had been shot while she was in a car; she was María de Lourdes Maldonado López. The journalist lived in the Villas neighborhood, in south Tijuana. So far it is known that an alleged hit man shot her at least three times and then he fled in a taxi."
