Mexican Politician's Daughter Assassinated During Lawmaker Session

The daughter of Carmen Medel Palma appears to be the fatal victim of a calculated assassination. Her mother is a regional opposition party politician, who runs in the now dominant Morena party. However, extreme partisanship and corruption grip Mexican politics. Many suspect the murder was motivated in part by Medel Palma's new legislation proposals to curb violence.

Miguel Ángel Yunes, a governor from a state notorious for committing these type of murders. How can they conclude so quickly and with the alleged shooter dead, conveniently? #Veracruz state government is a cauldron of corruption. We condemn the murder of Valeria Medel, daughter of Carmen Medel Palma, and #morena district representative in Veracruz.
