Cop and Former Cops Faked Roadside Blocks To Murder Model, Her Boyfriend and Brother

An officer of the Fuerza Publica (national police) in Alajuela and two former policemen faked a roadside police stop to intercept three people who were murdered in August last year.

The official, identified by his last name Vargas Melendez and the two ex-police, Saborío Segura and Barboza Pérez, were arrested on Monday for the alleged murder of model Isamara Alejandra Villalta Solano, 26 years old; her sentimental partner, Andrés Martín Pérez Vega, 35, and a minor, who was Villalta’s brother.

The model’s body and that of Pérez were found on August 13 on the banks of the Jesús María River, in Guadalupe de San Rafael de Esparza, Puntarenas; while the corpse of the young man, aged 17, appeared seven days later in the same place.

Vargas was head of the Grupo de Apoyo Operacional (GAO) – police tactical support group, confirmed OIJ director Walter Espinoza.
