Goyo, as his friends and relatives called him, worked as a journalist covering crime for the following media: Notisur, El liberal del sur and La red. Gregorio Jiménez was kidnapped, tortured, mutilated, and murdered in February, 2014.

Since September 2013, Jiménez had received threats, especially after the publication of an article reporting the murder of Gilberto Torres Reyes at the entrance of a bar called El Palmar owned by Teresa de Jesús Hernández Cruz, who was later indicted by state authorities as the intellectual author of the journalist's homicide, having paid twenty thousand pesos to have him murdered. 

Jiménez was the tenth journalist to be killed in Veracruz during the administration of Javier Duarte, which began in December 2010; today, that figure has increased to a total of thirteen journalists.

FOTO X GOYO, as the movement was called, collected over $131,000 pesos, an effort unprecedented in Mexico. Beyond the solidarity of this auction, it represented an act of protest against the negligence of the Mexican State toward the journalist's family.

Gregorio Jiménez de la Cruz was the tenth journalist murdered during the administration of Javier Duarte and the fifth during the six-year presidential administration of Enrique Peña Nieto. A total of thirteen journalists have been killed during the Duarte administration. The investigation of his homicide, as well as that of the other journalists murdered in the state of Veracruz, has been plagued with irregularities and mistakes, the most recurrent of these being the dismissal of the victims' journalistic profession as a criminal motive.

Gregorio Jiménez

Goyo, as his friends and relatives called him, worked as a journalist covering crime for the following media: Notisur, El liberal del sur and La red. Gregorio Jiménez was kidnapped, tortured, mutilated, and murdered in February, 2014.

Since September 2013, Jiménez had received threats, especially after the publication of an article reporting the murder of Gilberto Torres Reyes at the entrance of a bar called El Palmar owned by Teresa de Jesús Hernández Cruz, who was later indicted by state authorities as the intellectual author of the journalist's homicide, having paid twenty thousand pesos to have him murdered. 

Jiménez was the tenth journalist to be killed in Veracruz during the administration of Javier Duarte, which began in December 2010; today, that figure has increased to a total of thirteen journalists.
