MEXICO CITY (AP) — The daughter of a reporter slain earlier this week in the northern Mexico border state of Tamaulipas died Friday of wounds suffered in the attack that killed her father.

On Wednesday, Antonio de la Cruz became the 12th journalist killed so far this year in Mexico, when a man on a motorcycle fired at him in his car outside his home.

His daughter Cinthya de la Cruz Martínez, 23, was with him in the vehicle and was also shot.

On Friday, the newspaper De la Cruz worked for, Expreso, reported that the daughter had died of her injuries at a hospital in Ciudad Victoria, where the attack occurred. She had suffered a bullet wound to the head, according to the newspaper.

Also Friday, the governor of the western state of Jalisco said the director of a university radio station in the coastal city of Puerto Vallarta had been stabbed in what he described as an attempted robbery.

Gov. Enrique Alfaro said Susanna Carreño was in stable condition after undergoing surgery.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Thursday that federal prosecutors have taken over the investigation of the killing of de la Cruz as a crime against freedom of expression.

One of the reporter’s colleagues said De la Cruz had once been asked, apparently by state authorities, to remove some of his tweets.

“On Twitter, Antonio criticized the state government a lot and criticized the government,” said fellow reporter Carlos Manuel Juárez. “He even told me at one point that they had asked him to take down some critical tweets that he put up.”

De la Cruz, 47, was a reporter for the local newspaper Expreso for almost three decades.

“This is clearly an attack on freedom of expression,” said Expreso’s director, Miguel Domínguez.

Almost all of Tamaulipas’ recent governors have faced accusations of corruption, ranging from money laundering to aiding drug cartels.

Expreso has been targeted over the years. In 2012, one of the worst years of drug cartel violence, a car bomb exploded in front of the newspaper’s building. In 2018, a cooler with a human head inside was left at the newspaper, with a warning not to report on violence in the city.

Rich Eisen mercilessly trolled Ohio State at Pro Football Hall of Fame

While hosting the Pro Football Hall of Fame dinner, Michigan alum Rich Eisen couldn’t resist the opportunity to roast the Ohio State Buckeyes.

NFL Network’s Rich Eisen has spent much of the past decade-plus enduring misery as a Michigan Wolverines alum against the Ohio State Buckeyes.

After the Wolverines’ 42-27 win last November, though, the beloved personality couldn’t resist an opportunity to poke back at the Scarlet and Gray in a way only someone in the Maize and Blue could do.

At the Pro Football Hall of Fame ceremonial dinner, Eisen trolled the Buckeyes about the contest, bringing up Hassan Haskins and his magical day of five touchdowns while relishing over the end of eight years of Wolverine misery suffered at the hands of the Buckeyes. Needless to say, the Buckeye faithful in attendance were not pleased.

Coming to Ohio and trolling @OhioStateFB fans? Bold move, @richeisen ???? pic.twitter.com/hBkyLF1Duv

Rich Eisen savagely trolls Ohio State by referencing at Pro Football Hall of Fame dinner ceremony

Phew, it has been a long time coming, and in fairness to Rich Eisen and the Michigan Wolverines, they are the ones who get to enjoy the moment, at least until the next meeting. They won the game and the one who laughs last laughs best. That’s just the golden rule of competition and life. Ohio State doesn’t view it like that.

The view from the folks of Columbus is that the folks in Ann Arbor are enjoying this a bit too much, knowing good and well have long the Buckeyes have dominated in recent memory. Plus, the next meeting between the two will be in Columbus, where the Wolverines haven’t won since Drew Henson and David Terrell ran the show.

Either way, Rich Eisen provided a good laugh, at least in the eyes of Michigan fans, who have yearned for this moment. As for the Ohio State crowd, they have to bear it, and they may end up hearing it again unless they win the next meeting. Sports are fun, right? As are rivalries.
