Photojournalist Rubén Espinosa is among the five corpses found Friday night in an apartment of the Narvarte neighborhood of Mexico City.

Espinosa was a collaborator for the Proceso weekly magazine, which reported his disappearance on Friday, and the next day reported his death, with one of his sisters as source.

Espinosa also worked for news agency Cuartoscuro, whose director Pedro Valtierra confirmed his death.

Valtierra said to EL UNIVERSAL that Espinosa felt threatened in the state of Veracruz. "He was very afraid," he said.

Proceso expressed that Espinosa left the state for that reason.

So far, there is no official confirmation of his death.

At 9:00 p.m. Friday, a woman called the Department of Public Security to report four women and one man killed in her apartment.

Two women were found dead in one bedroom and a man and another woman in other. A maid was found in the bathroom.

The neighbours reported the presence for the last few days of an unknown vehicle in the parking area, and its disappearance after the killings.

According to authorities, three of the victims lived in the apartment where the corpses were found.
