The burnt body of journalist and 6TV owner Salvador Adame Pardo was found in Barranca del Diablo in the state of Michoacán, 40 days after he was kidnapped by armed men in the district of Múgica.

The State’s Attorney General Martin Godoy Castro said that personal problems are the probable cause for Adame Pardo’s kidnapping and murder, based on text messages found on his cellphone.

Godoy Castro said that the main suspect in the investigation is a crime leader known as “El Chano Peña,” according to testimony gathered from Daniel Rubio Ruiz, also known as “El Cabezas,” who was arrested last week in Michoacán.

According to Rubio Ruiz, he and Adame Pardo had known each other since childhood, which led him to search on his own for the kidnapped journalist.
