Ricardo Gangeme, 56, a prominent Argentine journalist, died Thursday after being shot in the head in the southern city of Trelew. He was editor of El Informador Chubutense and former editor of the Buenos Aires daily Cronica. Robbery did not appear to be a motive, police said. Colleagues reported that Mr. Gangeme, a crusading crime-fighting journalist, recently had received threats.
