"A family friend removed a floral wreath from Gisela Mota's grave in preparation for a cross ceremony. Gisela, 33, was still in her pajamas when a team of hired killers smashed into her parents' breezeblock house and on January 2 and shot her several times, killing her. Just hours earlier, she had been sworn in as the first female mayor of Temixco, a sleepy spa town an hour from Mexico City. The police believe her murder was part of a regional campaign by the Los Rojos cartel to control town halls and rob the towns' resources. In the #nytopinion section, Ioan Grillo writes about the latest evolution of the Mexican drug business, a process that American and Mexican officials seem unable to grasp. @adrianazehbrauskas took this photo, which is part of this week's #nytweekender series."
