Radio reporter slain at his home in northern Peru

July 11, 2014

LIMA, Peru (AP) — Peruvian authorities are investigating the slaying of a radio reporter whose body was found with indications of torture in a northern coastal city plagued by crime and corruption.

The local prosecutor says Donny Buchelli had been dead for two days when his body was found Thursday at his home in Pacasmayo, a city of 30,000. Prosecutor German Risco says Buchelli’s hands and feet were bound and he had been struck in the face and skull.

The 58-year-old Buchelli worked for Solymar radio and lived alone.

Buchelli is the first Peruvian journalist slain this year. Peru’s National Association of Journalists says two reporters were killed in the Andean nation last year.
