Q COSTA RICA – In the next chapter of the public breakup of former Miss Costa Rica Elena Correa (32) with her husband, Carlos Rodriguez (75), agents of the Organizmo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ) raided Correa’s house, located in El Castillo residential complex in San Rafael de Heredia.

Correa is accused of computer fraud, theft, asset exploitation and breach of duties.

A few days ago, the couple was in court and Correa requested alimony from her husband, which the court granted her an amount of ¢4 million colones monthly. But he has yet to pay the first payment and appealed the decision.

Later, it was revealed that the morning raid was based on a complaint signed by Rodriguez and his lawyer on April 12, accusing Correa of taking funds from his bank account without permission and other acts against him in violation of Costa Rica’s law protecting the elderly (“adulta mayor” in Spanish).

At the courthouse

Rodriguez (former owner of La Guacima, now Parque Viva) also sued Correa (Miss Costa Rica 2017) for the alleged improper retention of 6 luxury watches, one of them being a gold and silver Rolex, his passport and US$8,000, among other assets.

The couple in better times

“The transactions were made to the account of his wife Elena Correa, he does not know why she did them, but he suspects that it would be because they were divorcing or separating, for what she would be ensuring, in case of a possible separation, part of the assets of the complainant here,” explains Rodríguez’s complaint.

Later Friday afternoon, the Heredica court ordered Correa released on the condition of not contacting victims or referring to the case publicly.
