The family of New York IMC reporter Brad Will, killed Oct. 27, 2006—presumably at the hands of municipal police in Santa Lucía del Camino, Oaxaca—called upon Mexico’s Prosecutor General of the Republic (PGR) to follow the “logical” line of investigation and abandon ongoing probes of popular activists in Oaxaca. “This crime was one of the most photographed in history, yet they continue with this hypothesis while those responsible remain free,” Brad’s father Howard Will told the Mexico City daily La Jornada. He called upon Mexican federal authorities to undertake a “serious and objective” investigation, because that pursued by Oaxaca state authorities is totally “prejudiced.” (Re-translated from Spanish translation.)
