José Oquendo Reyes, who is the host of the radio and TV show "Sin Fronteras", was murdered near Pueblo Nuevo from gunfire that was said to originate from two unknown men who were riding on a motorcycle. The local authorities investigated the involvement of two men days after the murder and made an arrest 10 days after his murder.[1][2] While other reporters in Peru had recently received death threats before Oquendo Reyes' murder, his wife, who is the journalist Marina Juárez, was not aware of any threats to her husband.[3]


After Reyes death, there were numerous concerns in regards to the recent rise in violence against journalists in Peru. As stated in UN[4] , UNESCO Director General, Irina Bokova feels that is important that these authorities do not let these crimes go unpunished. Especially because fear and insecurity prevent journalists from providing society necessary information.
