Woman Decapitated in Mexico

Marisol Macías Castañeda, a newsroom manager for the Primera Hora newspaper in the Mexican border city of Nuevo Laredo, was found decapitated alongside a sign saying she was killed for her postings on a social-networking site. The site, Nuevo Laredo en Vivo, has a section for reporting the location of drug-gang lookouts and sales points, which possibly angered the Zetas cartel. It may be the third case so far this month of drug cartels killing people for what they said on the Internet.
