In Mexico, grupero musicians are being killed at an alarming rate – 13 in the past year and a half. Last month, singer Zayda Pena was shot to death in a hospital emergency room; Sergio Gomez of K-Paz de la Sierra beaten, tortured, and strangled. Maureen Meyer of the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA) explains what these murders have to do with Mexico’s brutal drug wars.
