I've heard Luis Colosio called Mexico's JFK. He was assassinated in Tijuana as a presidential candidate in 1994; terrible, a pistol was held up to his head as he was walking through a crowd.

As a side note...his wife died some eight months later while investigating the assassination.
There were apparently a few loose ends.
