QCOSTARICA – An American woman, arriving in Costa Rica last week, was found murdered in her hotel room in barrio La California, on the east side of San Jose. Authorities say she was killed by someone she trusted.

According to Michael Soto, head of the Departamento de Planes y Operaciones of the OIJ, the investigation so far points to her companion as the prime suspect.

“We are trying at this point to identify the man who accompanied her at the hotel, sharing food and drinks in the room,” said Soto.
