MS-Noticias said three of its reporters have been physically attacked in recent months, one of them by a group of Zorilla supporters.Veracruz state prosecutor Pericles Namorado Urrutia maintains that Mejía is on the run because he is a suspect in the theft of a car. It turned out that a car he had been lent was a stolen one. But his wife Magdalena Maza Mendoza insists that it is inconceivable that he chose to disappear. A local journalist said if Mejía had gone into hiding, the police would have found him by now and, anyway, his family would not have reporting him missing on 13 July.
