Oaxaca: Brad Will’s parents visit slay site

On March 21, Hardy and Kathy Will, parents of slain New York Indymedia journalist Bradley Roland Will, visited the Oaxaca barrio where their son was gunned down while filming street protests Oct. 27. Accompanied by dozens of supporters, they left behind a cross and flowers. Will’s parents said they plan to meet with Oaxaca prosecutor Lizbeth Caña but disputed her suggestion that their son was shot by a protester. Will’s family also plan to meet with the federal prosecutor general’s office in Oaxaca and ask officials there to take over the investigation. Supporters intend to begin a hunger strike in support of that demand. (AP, March 21)
