Mexico: Bradley Will Killed by Friendly Fire

Ballistics tests examining the murder of American journalist Bradley Will suggest a story line of Hollywood proportions. Says Mark in Mexico: “According to Lizbeth Caña, the Oaxaca State Attorney General, and 2 reporters from Reforma, Daniel Pensamiento y Virgilio Sánchez, it is now believed that Bradley Will was shot first by someone standing very close and slightly above him, and then shot a second time, while still alive, at point-blank range some 15-20 minutes later. Both bullets were 9mm.” Rodrigo Javier explains [ES] how Lizbeth Caña Cadeza followed the investigations of Milenio [ES] to come to the conclusion that Will was killed by friendly fire to “internationalize the conflict.” An article by Carlos Vigueras, posted at IndyMedia, however, argues that “the government of Mexico presented results of the investigations made into the murder of our companion Brad that try to blame members of the Popular Assembly of the People of Oaxaca as those who assassinated Brad.”
