Mexican politician was murdered while taking a selfie

Fernando Pouron had just finished a dibet with his political opponents in Piedras Negras when he was murdered while he was takinga selfie with a fan of his. The incident recorded a security camera. A muscular man with a hat, whose features are not visible, comes close to him and shoots him back to the head.

Pouron, according to the Guardian, is the 12th politician murdered in Mexico since September 2017, when the election process began in the country. The Mexicans are going to the polls on July 1st to elect a new president.

The motives of Puron’s murder remain unclear, although he has lately received threats and was forced to go out with 10 bodyguards.
