David Enrique Meza, journalist, assassinated

Journalist David Enrique Meza Ceibeño Montesinos, 51 years old, was shot dead today in the afternoon in his car, by unidentified men who followed him in another vehicle. The car driven by David Meza crashed into a fence a few yards from his home.

Meza was recognized for his extensive experience in various media such as El Patio, Ceiba Vision, BNG and Radio America. The people of La Ceiba was outraged by the cowardly assassination of a journalist completely identified with the poor and unjust causes.

The death of the journalist caused consternation and indignation in the Ceibeño society, nationally, and internationally. Radio El Patio, where Meza worked for 30 years until his death, was filled with calls from people around, lamenting the murder of Ceibeño journalist.

Lawmaker, Gonzalo Rivera, and former presidential candidate, Elvin Santos, expressed their regret over the killing of a man dedicated to God.

“I cannot believe what has happened, I have no words to express the grief that overwhelms me, God rest his soul,” Rivera said.

Elvin Santos called from Tegucigalpa to express their condolences to the family of Montesinos Meza, especially his wife Linda Cay Pandy.
