CULIACAN, Mexico — Mexican authorities say the body of an online newspaper journalist has been found a day after he was kidnapped.
Sinaloa state assistant prosecutor Martin Robles says the body of 53-year-old Humberto Millan Salazar was found in a farm building outside the city of Culiacan with a gunshot wound in the face.
Culiacan is the capital of the northwestern state of Sinaloa, where some of Mexico's most powerful drug gangs operate.
Millan Salazar was the director of the online newspaper A-Discusion and also worked in radio. Robles says he was snatched from his vehicle by at least four men in Culiacan early Wednesday.
Mexico's National Human Rights Commission says 71 journalists have been killed and 14 have disappeared since 2000.
