Nadia Vera, 32, was among five victims killed Friday in Mexico, including photographer Ruben Espinosa. She said in November that Veracruz Governor Javier Duarte would be "responsible" if she suffered any attack.
Three of the four women who were killed along with Ruben Espinosa were assaulted before being shot in the head. Loved ones identified them as friends ranging in ages from 18 to 32, and one 40-year-old house cleaner.
Indie candidates also stormed to victory in key races in Jalisco, while the upstart leftist Morena movement made gains in Mexico City and in Congress. One man is killed in Guerrero.
