(MEXICO CITY, Mexico) – Mexico’s Secretary of the Interior, Franciso Blake Mora, died Friday in a helicopter crash, according to Mexican President Calderon’s Office.
President Calderon has cancelled his trip to the APEC summit following the news.
Secretary Mora was the official number two in the country, and died at the age of 45. He was appointed as interior secretary in July 2010 by Calderon.
ABC’s Jose Cohen reports that there is so far no suggestion of foul play, but that it’s something “we may never know.”
