Mexican media reported that Ocampo's 27 officers were detained by the state and were asked about potential complicity in the murder of the candidate.

The statement did got give further details beyond stating that the investigation was focusing on violations of the police's code of conduct.

Some local police forces are believed to be involved in corruption as Mexico struggles to fight back against powerful drug cartels fueled by demand in the United States.

The agents returned with reinforcements to take them all into custody along with Mr Garcia. Juarez also supported the centrist coalition, For Michoacan in Front.

Next Sunday, Mexico will hold presidential elections, with more than 3,400 positions on state and municipal levels being up for grabs across the country.

Season Three? Freeform Renewal Still Possible Despite Cancellation Reports
The series was renewed for a second season a couple months after the finale aired. "I woulda liked a phone call maybe". Season two averaged 254,000 total viewers, down from 330,000 in its freshman run, the trade publication said.

In total, at least 113 politicians have been killed between September 2017 and May 2018, according to a study by risk analysis company Etellekt.

The fact that an entire municipal police force is being questioned for its potential links to a candidature killing is almost unprecedented. "They detained the entire police force of Ocampo, Michoacan". According to the think tank, Zero Impunity, 80 percent of Mexico's homicides go unsolved.

Officials from the government's ministry of public security arrived in Ocampo on Saturday to detain municipal public security chief Oscar Gonzalez on suspicion of being complicit in the assassination - only to be blocked by local police.

In statements on its Twitter account Sunday, the state police department did not directly tie the detentions to the Thursday killing of Fernando Angeles Juarez, the mayoral candidate for the leftist Democratic Revolution Party.
