The detainee, identified as Hector "N" alias "El Moreno" of 34 years, originally from Veracruz, is allegedly a drug trafficking leader of the Santa Rosalía square and remains in the municipal jail.

According to the prosecutor Daniel de la Rosa, the main motive for the crime is of a "personal" nature, since it was believed that the communicator was picked up and killed after a traffic incident.

However, he undertook to exhaust all lines of investigation including the work of Murúa Manriquez at the Radio Kashanay community radio station.

The capture took place on Saturday the 26th and elements of the Ministry of the Navy and agents of the Ministerial Police participated in compliance with an arrest warrant.

"I thank the authorities of the security coordination group for their work in arresting the alleged killer. This cowardly crime will not go unpunished, "governor Carlos Mendoza Davis wrote in social networks.

For two years, Murúa Manriquez had been threatened for his work on several occasions, including protection measures by the Ministry of the Interior.
