Journalists investigating the recent slaying of one of their colleagues said Wednesday that they have found a slew of mistakes, omissions and bad policing that undermine government claims that the man was killed as part of a personal dispute. Gregorio Jimenez, a prolific freelance journalist kidnapped and found dead last month, “was without a doubt killed because of his work: to inform,” Maria Idalia Gomez, a representative of the Inter-American Press Assn. and participant in the inquiry, said at a news conference.
