Alicia Diaz Gonzalez, 52, was found dead on Thursday at her home in Mexico.

Her children found her with stab wounds to the back of the neck and in a pool of her own blood.

They had been upstairs at the time at the time she was killed and did not hear anything awry.

This was the account given by the state attorney general's office.

The female journalist "was on the floor, face down, in a pool of blood having suffered blows," a source from the Nuevo Leon state prosecutor's office told AFP on condition of anonymity.

This comes one week after journalist Juan Carlos Huerta was shot dead as he left his home in a suburb of Villahermosa in southeast Mexico.

Although, a motive for the Diaz’ killing has not been established, her colleagues told AFP she reported on local business activity and financial issues, not "sensitive" information such as drug trafficking.

Nevertheless, the National Human Rights Commission urged authorities to focus their investigation on Diaz's line of work.

She has worked with El Financiero newspaper since January and Editor Mauricio Mejia has taken to social media to call for an "urgent... official response" to the death.
