Leftist Politician’s Body Found in Western Mexico

MEXICO CITY – The body of a leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution, or PRD, councilman who disappeared last month in the western Mexican state of Michoacan was found at a trash dump, state prosecutors said.

Ruben Magaña’s body was discovered near the municipal dump in Penjamillo on Sunday afternoon, the Michoacan Attorney General’s Office said.

The 67-year-old politician’s body did not have any visible “signs of violence,” the AG’s office said in a statement.

Magaña Reyes, who was a city councilman in Penjamillo, disappeared on Feb. 19 and his SUV was found close to the cemetery in the neighboring city of Numaran.

PRD chairman Carlos Navarrete expressed his regret over the councilman’s death and called for a thorough investigation in a Twitter post
