Mexican blogger and citizen journalist Doctor María del Rosario Fuentes Rubio, is dead, according to Breitbart Texas. María del Rosario Fuentes Rubio was kidnapped at gunpoint by a group of unidentified individuals in the border town of Reynosa on Wednesday at around noon. Hours after her abduction, a photo of what appears to be the blogger, is tweeted to her Twitter followers.
Police say the account was most likely hacked by the abductors and used to threaten others who speak out about Mexico’s dangerous drug cartels. According to Borderland Beat, someone using Dr. Maria’s Twitter handle @miut3, posted a gruesome photo of a dead Mexican woman with blood on the face and hands. Dr. Maria’s Twitter followers believe that it is her body. The following message was posted to Twitter.
“Friends and Family, my real name is Maria del Rosario Fuentes Rubio, I am a doctor, now my life has met it’s end. have NO more to say except that you do not commit the same mistake that I did. I gained nothing, on the contrary, TODAY I REALIZE THAT.
#reynosafollow I ecountered death, and nothing was changed. @Bandolera7 @civilarmado_mx@ValorTamaulipas Close your accounts! Don’t risk your safety and that of your family. As I did. I ask for your forgiveness. I found death for nothing.
We are closer than you think.”
Terrified friends and fellow bloggers posted messages to their Twitter accounts expressing their deep sorrow for the loss of Dr. María del Rosario Fuentes Rubio but stated that they would not stop the work of exposing the violence and illegal activities of the Mexican drug cartels because Dr. María del Rosario Fuentes Rubio would never surrender.
The Tamaulipas state police are continuing to investigate the crime and hope to find out if the murder was connecting to her writings or a disgruntled family member of one of her patients.
In the past journalists, bloggers and at least one blog commenter have been murdered for speaking out against Mexican drug cartels. The local media, for the most part, has ceased to report on anything having to do with Mexican drug cartels, as stated in My San Antonio. Mexican drug cartels have also become problematic for American law enforcement officials who say that the cartels in Mexico are flooding the United States with a cheap form of Meth, according to a previous article by Inquisitr.
