Aristóteles Sandoval Díaz was governor of Jalisco from 2013 to 2018.

Mexico woke up this Friday with the news of the murder of Aristóteles Sandoval, the 46-year-old former governor of the state of Jalisco (west) who had left office just in 2018.

As the hours and the investigation progressed, the state attorney general Gerardo Solís advanced an initial conclusion: “It was not a fortuitous or circumstantial act.”

“There was a timing of events to find the former governor at its most vulnerable“, he assured in a radio interview.

And not only are there indications that it was a carefully planned crime, but the Attorney General’s Office faces the challenge of investigating a scene that was “cleaned up” in its entirety.
