Author: associated press

MEXICO CITY (AP) – Mexico City’s prosecutor says one person has been detained in the case of a photojournalist found slain along with 4 women.

Rodolfo Rios Garza says the person was identified by a fingerprint found in the apartment and that it registered to someone with a criminal record.

Photojournalist Ruben Espinosa was found dead Friday, shot in the head, his body bound and tortured. The attackers also killed his friend, Nadia Vera and two of her roommates, as well as their 40-year-old housekeeper.

Espinosa had fled the state of Veracruz after being threatened and harassed by strangers.
