QCOSTRICA – The national child welfare agency, the Patronato Nacional de la Infancia (PANI), has file a case against the grandmother of the two surviving children in the Matapalo massacre last February, for “violencia patrimonial”.

The president of the PANI, Ana Teresa León, said the case of was filed last month in the Santa Cruz (Guancaste) Family Court after the children’s maternal grandmother, surnamed Guerra, took property and goods from the house where the crime occurred.

The welfare agency is demanding the return of the property, which it says belongs to the surviving children.

“We are making efforts that the house remains in the name of the children. Apparently, things were taken out of the house and brought to San Jose,” said Leon.

The press office of the Poder Judicial (Judiciary) said they could only confirm that there is a case in process, but could not provide details.

The house is in the name of Dirk Beauchamp, an American who along with his Costa Rican wife, Yeimmy Jessica Duran and their three children, were murdered on February 16. Surviving the massacre were two sisters: a four-year old and a nine month old, the latter believed to be fathered by the assassin, who fled to his native Nicaragua and is being tried there given that the Nicaragua Constitution does not permit extradition of its citizens.
