Luis Alejandro Gómez Palma was taken from his home in Coatzacoalcos, VER, by a group of strangers at 1 PM on September 13, 2017. He was beaten up, but managed to escape from his captors six hours later in a nearby town.
Gómez is currently a social media reporter, and worked for Olmeca TV until recently. He was part of litigation against Olmeca TV, and was fired with some other reporters because they were unwilling to accept a settlement.
