A marketing executive in the Tijuana offices of broadcaster TV Azteca was gunned down in the garage adjoining her home last week in what appeared to be a professional hit. Executive Angelica Aguilar, who was 32 at the time of her death, was shot three times March 15, 2004 by an unknown assailant and died instantly. Neighbors saw the male gunman jump into a car and drive quickly away. Early reports suggest Aguilar may have been targeted for having told local police the identity of the killers of her brother, who was shot dead in 2003.
