Small-town mayor stoned to death in western Mexico
MEXICO CITY, Sept 27 (Reuters) - The mayor of a small town in western Mexico was found on Monday stoned to death in the third attack on a public official in the country in less than a week, local authorities said.
The bodies of Gustavo Sanchez, mayor of Tancitaro in Michoacan state, and an aide were found, officials said.
"It appears they stoned them to death," a source from the local prosecutor's office said on condition of anonymity.
Local media reported that the bodies were found in the back of a flat-bed truck.
There was no immediate indication whether the killings were related to drug violence. More than 29,000 people have been killed in violence between rival drug cartels and between cartels and state security forces since President Felipe Calderon launched his offensive on cartels in 2006.
On Friday, a mayor-elect in northern Chihuahua state was shot in the head and chest by suspected drug hitmen, leaving him in critical condition.
A day earlier, armed men killed the mayor of a town outside Mexico's northern business city of Monterrey.
