A journalist was found dead in the trunk of an abandoned car, Mexican authorities said when a media observer vowed to investigate whether the death of the deceased had anything to do with his job.

The body of Rogelio Barragan, director of the Guerrero Al Instante portal, was found with blunt force trauma to the face and brain, Morales state prosecutor’s office said.

Journalists Without Borders (RSF), which listed Mexico, Syria and Afghanistan as the most dangerous areas in the world for journalists, said the deceased had more than 10 years of experience.

“We will continue to investigate to determine if his death is related to his duties,” said RSF representative Balbina Flores.

The deceased was the seventh journalist killed this year in Mexico with over 100 journalists killed since 2000 following violence related to drug trafficking and political corruption.

The majority of the assassins are still free without punishment.

In May, criminal journalist Francisco Romero was murdered at a resort in Carribbean waters after being threatened.

Romero, who was involved in a program of journalists and human rights activists under the government, was found stabbed to death in his hometown of Playa del Carmen.
