Less than a week before her death, Tatiana Mirutenko posted a trio of photos from her wedding to Instagram: “Year 1,” she wrote, adding a heart under the images of her and her husband.

Soon afterward, the couple would travel from their home in California to Mexico City for what was supposed to be a celebration of their first wedding anniversary, Mirutenko’s family told ABC 7 News.

Instead, the trip ended in tragedy after Mirutenko was killed early Saturday morning in an apparent drive-by shooting in Lomas de Chapultepec, a wealthy neighborhood in the Mexican capital better known for its mix of colonial and modern-style mansions than for violence.

Unlike some other regions in Mexico that had Level 3 or 4 warnings, the State Department has assigned a Level 2 advisory (“exercise increased caution”) to Mexico City “due to crime.” The department has placed no travel restrictions on U.S. government employees in Mexico City.

Other destinations in Mexico, once assumed to be wholly safe for tourists, have been the subject of warnings in recent months.

In March, the State Department issued a security alert for Playa del Carmen, a popular Mexican resort city on the Caribbean coast, saying the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City had received “credible information” about a threat to the city.

The advisory for Playa del Carmen came about two weeks after an explosion on a tourist ferry in Playa del Carmen injured 26 people, including at least five U.S. citizens. Later, undetonated explosives were discovered on another ferry that, like the first one, shuttled tourists between Playa del Carmen and nearby Cozumel island.

The Playa del Carmen advisory was removed about two weeks later.
