Mexico City - A Mexican investigative magazine is reporting that one of its collaborators is among five people found slain early Saturday in an apartment in Mexico City.

The magazine Proceso says the body of photographer Ruben Espinosa, who had gone missing on Friday, was identified by a family member on Saturday afternoon. He had two gunshot wounds, the magazine reported on Saturday.

Espinoza, who also collaborated with other media, had recently gone into self-exile from the Gulf coast state of Veracruz, where he felt under threat, according to Proceso. The other victims were not identified.
