Mexican journalists are reporting that this man, Francisco Zamarripa Martinez, was beat and tortured by Mexican military. Paramedics transported him to a hospital where he was treated for severe burns throughout the body. He was later pronounced dead. According to reports, ambulances picked him up near a highway after a witness called claiming to have seen Zamarripa's body being off-loaded by soldiers.
The military was sent to border towns by President Felipe Calderon to combat drug violence and corruption. However, lately we've heard several complaints against them. All this while the Mexican media across the border has admittedly refused to report on drug violence linked to cartels.
Reports of Zamarripa's death did not specify whether or not he was linked to drug cartels.
