The woman, identified by local officials as Marisol Macías Castañeda, a newsroom manager for the Primera Hora newspaper, was found in Nuevo Laredo next to a handwritten note claiming she was murdered for posts about the Zetas cartel, which is believed to dominate the area’s drug trade to Laredo, Texas.
Macías Castañeda held an administrative post at Primera Hora, not a reporting job, according to a colleague who wished to remain anonymous. But it was apparently what she posted on the social networking site Nuevo Laredo en Vivo (Nuevo Laredo Live), rather than her role at the newspaper, that prompted her murder.
The site prominently features tip hotlines for the Mexican army, navy and police, and includes a section for reporting the location of drug gang lookouts and drug sales points – possibly the information that angered the cartel.
The message found next to her body on the side of a main road referred to the nickname Macías Castañeda purportedly used on the site, La Nena de Laredo (Laredo Girl). Her head was found placed on a large stone piling nearby.
“Nuevo Laredo en Vivo and social networking sites, I’m The Laredo Girl, and I’m here because of my reports, and yours,” the message read. “For those who don’t want to believe, this happened to me because of my actions, for believing in the army and the navy. Thank you for your attention, respectfully, Laredo Girl…ZZZZ.”
I participated in Fight Gone Bad to raise funds for soldiers who have been injured during their service.
Here is me pre-workout:
So, this how this form of self-torture goes—
1 minute of each: Wall Ball, Sumo Deadlift High Pull, Box Jumps, Push Press, Row. Then a, not long enough, one minute break. The total deal is 17 minutes long.
I managed to crank out 162 reps. That’s a personal record for me. Before you start sending me flowers and other presents for my amazing work, you should probably know the high score for women was, like, 280, or something.
Mireya Garcia…Last, so you don’t have to be.
I had an amazing time, and our box raised more than $3,000!
Fight Gone Bad is a Crossfit workout that is 17 minutes of pure pukey hell.
I am allowing myself to go through this to raise money for wounded warriors, and you should help me reach my goal. Since you are so pretty/handsome/both, I know you’ll donate some dinero to this worthy cause.
As incentive, I promise to post very horrible pictures of myself attempting this workout should you help me reach my goal.
By the way, did you get my guns title? Did ya? I’m hilarious.
Not, Why am I getting older?— but Why did I freakout?
I’ve been spending the last few years dreading being the youngest at work. Like a true amazing friend, I make fun of the people around me that are having panic attacks over turning 30. I’ve always thought age didn’t matter as long as you take care of yourself.
I guess, maybe, I always thought I’d be Hannah Montana successful by now, with out any of the crazy, but all I’ve got is the crazy.
Don’t get me wrong. I love my life, and the successes I’ve had, like I said, I’m just insane.
Happy Birthday, to me, to you, and your pet. E-hugs all around.
People stopped wearing hats in the early 60's. It's often blames on Kennedy for showing up to his 1961 inauguration without a hat but that's not, actually, true. He had shown up in a Top hat instead of the more casual hats he normally wore. I think he did stop wearing hats so often after that, though, and, when he did, they were usually top hats. I may be wrong on that bit though.
B. It took me a while to figure out why you were telling me this. I’m clearly still half-asleep.
