Report: "No proof" man killed in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico was social media user

UPDATE: Nuevo Laredo Live reports that the man killed is "not one of our collaborators," but "a scapegoat" whose murder serves to send a message of fear.

Animalpolitico reports about questions in the case of a man murdered yesterday in a cartel-style torture and beheading, who was identified in the press as a moderator of the "Nuevo Laredo Live" forum where locals share narco crime tips. An editor with that same website was confirmed murdered two months ago, but in this new case, the identity of the person killed Wednesday is still unknown. Previous BB post here.
