Mexican journalist Lourdes Maldonado López was killed Sunday. She was found shot to death inside a car, according to a statement from the Baja California state prosecutor’s office. Authorities had received a 911 call around 7 p.m. and found Maldonado dead on arrival. Today, people are sharing photos of her loyal dog still waiting for her at the front door of her home.

Before her assassination, Maldonado had asked President Andrés Manuel López Obrador for his support “Because I fear for my life,” she said.

The slain journalist had worked for several media outlets, including Primer Sistema de Noticias (PSN), which is owned by Jaime Bonilla, who was governor of Baja California from 2019 to the end of 2021.

As noted by multiple reports, Maldonado had been locked in a years-long labor dispute with Bonilla, who was elected governor of Baja California as a candidate from López Obrador’s Morena party. Maldonado said she had not been paid wages due to her and called Bonilla a “powerful character” while asking the president for his support.

Maldonado had recently announced that she won her dispute with the media company Bonilla owned after nine years of litigation.

At least seven journalists were murdered in Mexico in 2021, according to CBS News.

The news outlet also stated that “more than 100 reporters have been murdered since 2000 in Mexico and only a fraction of the crimes have resulted in convictions.”
