There were accusations of electoral fraud, and it got pretty nasty. There have been other instances of politicians going down with planes, helicopters etc. There supposedly was a 5th person on board who hasn't been identified.

New elections in 5 months....going to get really really nasty.

According to the Article 57 of the Constitution of Puebla, the state Congress has to choose the citizen to replace the governor of direct popular election in his temporary or absolute absence, if it happens in two first years of the constitutional period.
