Mexican drug cartel tracks down journalist, kills her - then uses her own Twitter account to boast about it

A citizen journalist named Dr María del Rosario Fuentes Rubio from Reynosa, Mexico, who spoke out against organised crime in her city was tracked down and brutally killed by Mexican drug cartel who then hacked into her twitter account and used it to announce her death and then posted a photo of her bloody, lifeless body.

The cruel pic was accompanied by a series of tweets, which started by saying: 'Friends and family, my real name is María del Rosario Fuentes Rubio. I am a physician. Today my life has reached its end. Do not make the same mistake I did.' Continue...

From UK Daily Mail
She was known for tweeting under the name Felina and @Miut3 handle with the hashtag #reynosafollow to warn others about crime in her city, which has a reputation for corruption.
The Tamaulipas state prosecutor's office says it is investigating whether Dr Fuentes Rubio has been killed after being reported kidnapped by a gunman on Thursday.
Dr Fuentes Rubio was an administrator for Valor por Tamaulipas (which means Courage for Tamaulipas), the most popular citizen news hub in the state.
Her Twitter account was once used to share information about possible shootouts within the heavy gang and drug cartel community, but has since been suspended. 
The Valor por Tamaulipas Facebook group paid tribute to Dr Fuentes Rubio, calling her 'a doctor who was dedicated to informing the community about risks—with a heart as large as her courage.'
Members of the group posted: 'Today, Miut3 stopped reporting. But the criminals do not know that Miut3 this in our soul and she never would surrender to organised crime.'
The group received a threatening tweet a week before her death which said: 'We're coming very close to many of you watch out felina.'
Reynosa lies within the state of Tamaulipas which borders Texas from east Laredo to the Gulf of Mexico. 
Two rival drug cartels in Tamaulipas have final say over what gets printed or broadcast in the local media, according to the Daily Beast.
This means the people of the state increasingly have turned to social media to share information about organized crime and its infiltration of the government.

Mexican drug cartels have been know long before now for their serial killings of innocent citizens but my question is why haven't the government of Mexico done anything to stop mere criminals terrorizing and killing its citizens in the name of drug cabals.
It is just a pity what is obtainable in some countries. Anyway RIP to the dead.

The drug lords in Brazil and Mexico are so brutal they don't even fear mauling down anybody they perceive is interfering in their business! It's just awful what goes on there!
