Blog del Narco Author Who Chronicled Mexico’s Drug War Forced To Flee

The author of a pioneering blog about Mexico’s drug war has said that she has fled the country and that her blog partner has gone missing.

The young woman, using her pseudonym Lucy, said her colleague phoned her last week to say a single word – “run” – and then vanished, prompting her to flee to the United States and then Spain.

“I’m trying to think positively but I’m scared something terrible has happened. ‘Run’ was our codeword for when something was very wrong. We had never used it before.”

Blog del Narco is an internet sensation which has chronicled Mexico’s drug war with graphic images and shocking stories few others dare show. It has been a must-read for authorities, drug gangs and millions of ordinary people.
