Mexico's Interior Minister Dies in Plane Crash

La Opinin, Posted: Nov 07, 2008

MEXICO CITY Mexicos Interior Minister Juan Camilo Mourio and Attorney General Jose Luis Santiago Vasconcelos died Nov. 4 in a plane crash near Mexico City, reports La Opinin. Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard told La Opinin that none of the passengers survived. Several media have conjectured that Mourios plane explosion might have been the work of drug traffickers. Mexican President Felipe Caldern and his administration declared war on drug trafficking when he took office in December 2006. Caldern called on all Mexicans to work for a better Mexico and said Mourio was an intelligent, loyal, hard-working man who was committed to his country. Mourio was a possible replacement for Caldern in Mexicos 2012 presidential elections. In August, Mourio told La Opinin that he wanted immigrant living conditions improved, calling them "an indispensable pillar for the country." Mourio was 37 years old and had three children ages nine, six and three.
