Californian killed in Ixtapa

Rob, is it the same mayor for Ixtapa as Zihuatanejo?

Yes. Ixtapa is not a town. It is a planned resort administered by the federal government via FONATUR. They still owe millions of pesos to our local ejidatarios for land that was expropriated over 40 years ago but they refuse to pay, so besides prosecuting a slow-moving lawsuit, the local ejidatarios have been marching each week in Ixtapa. The municipal government is responsible for security there. The mayor and governor and tourism officials just had a huge photo op in Ixtapa a couple of weeks ago with hundreds of police and soldiers and marines, and it was just as useless as I said it would be.
