By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Authorities in Chetumal are investigating the murder of the former Director of the Cancun prison, Fermin Cortes Burgos.

Burgos was reportedly shot to death around 11 am on Monday in Chetumal.

Law enforcement officials first believed it was a traffic accident after a motorcycle was seen on the ground and a taxi had damages.

However, surveillance footage showed that Burgos was shot at and was reportedly fleeing hitmen who were also on motorcycles.

He crashed into a taxi and the culprits  shot him multiple times.

Local reports indicate that police collected as many as 20 shell casings.

Burgos was working as advisor to the state Secretariat of Citizen Security.
