Mexico City’s prosecutor says surveillance video shows three suspects leaving the apartment where five people were found tortured and shot. Among the victims was a photojournalist who felt under threat and left the Mexican state he covered to seek refuge in the capital.
Rodolfo Rios Garza says the video captures men leaving the building Friday afternoon with a roller suitcase and driving away in a red Ford Mustang thought to have been used by one of the victims. The car was found abandoned Monday.
Photojournalist Ruben Espinosa, cultural promoter Nadia Vera and three other women were found bound with gunshot wounds to the heads. Some of the women appeared to have been sexually abused.
Espinosa had fled the Gulf coast state of Veracruz in June under threat.
