Taxco reporter Francisco Pacheco Beltrán went to leave his daughter at the terminal and return home, but at around 6:30 a.m., a commando shot him at point-blank range. Found at the scene were 9 mm shell casings. The journalist was a correspondent for Radio Capital, El Sol de Acapulco and editor of El Foro de Taxco.

The mayor of Taxco, Omar Flores Majúil confirms that at 7:00 a.m. Pacheco Beltrán’s family requested help.

Red Cross responders confirmed that the journalist died immediately.

The murder was immediately reported by local and national media. The condemnation and demand for speedy justice was widespread among journalists’ organizations of Mexico. It was demanded that priority be given to focus investigations as a crime on the professional work of the journalist.

The Inter-American Press Association (IAPA) demanded, in a statement, the immediate intervention of the federal government to prevent that this crime from”becoming a double silencing.”

Fellow journalists of Pacheco Beltrán at Capital Máxima of Chilpancingo, were waiting for his participation in the news program “Al Instante” at 7:15 a.m. to transmit his story, “False alarm generates psychosis and spectacular police operation in Taxco.”

In the production studio he was called at 7:15 to receive information but the cell phone was answered.

Pacheco Beltrán had a website known as “Pacheco Digital” that was found at the web address: www.franciscopacheco.com; and he edited a weekly column of analysis and information: “El Foro de Taxco” (The Taxco Forum).

The Guerrero Journalistic Investigation Agency examined the professional profile of the murdered reporter and highlighted his criticism and general attitude. As evidence, which must be taken into account according to expert researchers, are titles of articles and opinion columns published between late 2015 and recent weeks of 2016 that refer to crime, corruption and police in Taxco.
