An executive with a company that publishes three of Honduras' newspapers was found slain Friday inside his residence in the northern city of San Pedro Sula, police said.

Hector Flores, 35, was stabbed to death.

While authorities have not ruled out anything, the motive was apparently not robbery, as nothing was taken from the home.

The victim was head of Organizational Development and Corporate Social Responsibility for the Opsa group, which publishes La Prensa and El Heraldo and sports daily Diez.

Police did not say who found the body.

Neighbors said Flores hosted a party at his home Thursday night, but none of them heard or saw any indications of violence at the residence.

Honduras suffered 85.5 homicides for every 100,000 residents in 2012, compared with a global median rate of 8.8 murders per 100,000, the Violence Observatory at the National Autonomous University said in a study released in February. EFE
