A week after Marisela Escobedo Ortiz was fatally shot after embarrassing authorities by publicly demanding progress in bringing her 17-year-old daughter's killer to justice, the brother of her partner has been murdered, and his business has been burnt to the ground.

The Chihuahua state attorney general's office says the body of Manuel Monge Amparan was identified Sunday after being dumped on a street in Ciudad Juárez, across from El Paso, Texas.

The body was found Saturday after Monge's lumber business was set on fire, prosecutors said.

Monge was the brother of José Monge, whose partner, Marisela Escobedo Ortiz, was shot to death Thursday outside the offices of Chihuahua Gov. César Duarte. The activist had said she wouldn't move until investigators showed progress in bringing her 17-year-old daughter's killer to justice.
