(QCOSTARICA) The only suspect in the murder of Mexican tourist María Trinidad Mathus Tenorio in Cóbano, a man named Sancho Rodríguez was acquitted for doubt.

María Trinidad Matus Tenorio, 25, traveled to Costa Rica at the end of July 2018 to enjoy nature. She was murdered on August 8, 2018, in Playa El Carmen, in Santa Teresa de Cóbano.

That was the conclusion of the Puntarenas Criminal Court this Tuesday morning, determining that the evidence was insufficient to prove Rodriguez committed the murder.

The man was ordered to be released.

Mathus’ friend, an English tourist, escaped the attack.

The prosecutor alleged that Rodriguez dragged Mathus into the sea, in the attack stripped of her clothing and submerged her in the water, drowning the woman, then fled the scene with her cell phone.

In the attack of the Mathus’ friend, the suspect identified by his last name Esquivel, accepted an abbreviated process and sentenced to 15 years in prison
