The late writer worked as an independent journalist who worked for El Diario de Nuevo Laredo for several years.
After leaving the outlet Dominguez Rodriguez began to work on his own writing for various print and online outlets.
The city of Nuevo Laredo, where the murder took place, is under the control of the Cartel del Noreste (CDN) a splinter of what at one time was Los Zetas Cartel.
Dominguez’s Rodriguez’s murder comes just 8 days after the murder of Jose Gerardo Martinez, an editor for Mexico’s El Universal, who died while buying presents near Mexico City, Breitbart Texas reported.
Editor’s Note: Breitbart Texas traveled to the Mexican States of Tamaulipas, Coahuila, and Nuevo León to recruit citizen journalists willing to risk their lives and expose the cartels silencing their communities.
