Revenge and settling scores are half of the cases (52).

Striking is that 19 of the victims were women, compared to the four in the same period in 2022.
Jorge Torres, head of the Ministerio de Seguridad Pública (MSP) – Ministry of Public Security, hopes that the containment work they are carrying out, particularly in areas of Puntarenas, Alajuela and Limón provinces, will soon be seen in the homicide indicators.

According to figures from the judicial police, 2 out of 3 murders reported to date have occurred in San José (26), Limón (22) and Puntarenas (19).
