    An arrested hit man with the Mexican drug smuggling gang, Los Zetas, tells Mexican authorities that his gang murdered a long-missing reporter and dissolved his body in acid.

    The reporter, Rodolfo Rincon, 54, of the Tabasco Hoy newspaper in the Gulf coastal state of Tabasco, was last seen Jan. 20, 2007, after he reported on local drug dealers.

    On Sunday, a spokesman for the Tabasco state prosecutor’s office told reporters that an arrested hit man told them about murdering Rincon.

    This is the latest murder in a country that has become one of the most dangerous in the world for reporters. Watchdog groups estimate at least 60 reporters have been killed since 2000.

    I just spent the last couple days going to Nogales for medical reasons.
    I am not surprised by this report, and tend to believe it to be true.

    I offer the following advice to others visiting border towns to get medical treatment or whatever reason, based entirely on my own personal experience. There are private security companies waiting for your business right across the border, hire them. Tip them. Do not haggle over the price they ask.
    Just hire yourself private security guards, it is well worth the peace of mind.

    Decriminalize drugs and this disappears almost over night.
