Santiago Barroso Alfaro

The radio journalist, who presented a programme entitled “San Luis Hoy” was killed in his home, a day after he had denounced the string of people linked to human and drug trafficking in Sonora. Santiago Barroso Alfaro also edited an online news outlet Red 635 and collaborated with Contraseña, a local weekly where, in his last column, he had reported that the corridor San Luis Rio Colorado in Sonora, México, was one route of illegal human and drug trafficking. He had warned that it would be a grave error to focus on destroying the empire built by the convicted drug baron Joaquín Guzmán Loera, without also addressing the San Luis Rio Colorado corridor.
