In this photo taken Dec. 13, 2009, Gustavo Sanchez, mayor of the small town of Tancitaro, Mexico, is depicted prior to the successful recall election that removed him from office. The bodies of Sanchez and an aide Rafael Equihua were discovered on a dirt road near the city of Uruapan, Mexico, on Monday Sept. 27, 2010. According to a spokesman for the Michoacan state Attorney General, the men were stoned to death.
Questions were being asked about the legality of the recall election because no one could be found who had signed the recall petition.
