Raúl Gibb Guerrero, La Opinión
8 April 2005

Gibb,53 was gunned down on 8 April 2005 at around 9:30 p.m. some 200 metres from his home, to which he was returning. He sustained seven bullet injuries, three in the head, three in the abdomen and one in the left arm.

Police said the shots were fired from a distance of about two metres. According to witnesses, four men fired about 15 times from two cars that were following Gibb’s car, which ran off the road and crashed into the verge.

The Associated Press news agency quoted José Luis Santiago Vasconcelos, the prosecutor in charge of the case, as saying he suspected a link with drug traffickers, who are very active in Veracruz state
