22 year old Armando Montano, an AP summer news intern was found dead in Mexico City, Mexico. Montano was found dead early Saturday morning in an elevator shaft of an apartment building near where he was living in the capital’s Condesa neighborhood. The circumstances of his death are being investigated by Mexican authorities. The Associated Press is saying that he was not on assignment at the time of his death. He is survived by his parents, Diane Alters and Mario Montano, of Colorado Springs, who both teach at Colorado College. What a shame that someone’s life was taken far too young. Rest in Peace.
Armando Montano, an aspiring journalist who was working this summer as a news intern for The Associated Press in the Mexican capital, was found dead early Saturday. He was 22 years old.
Montano’s body was found in the elevator shaft of an apartment building near where he was living in the capital’s Condesa neighborhood. The circumstances of his death were being investigated by Mexican authorities.
As reported at New York Magazine, one of the last stories he reported Montano filed for the AP involved the shooting deaths of three federal policemen at Mexico City’s airport. Accident, murder, payback, or someone just sending a message? I guess we will see how the Mexican authorities investigate this death?
