Geovanny Soto Ruiz, owner of the Mountain Paradise Hotel, in La Palma de la Fortuna, and his two sons were murdered Saturday night in what authorities believe to be a settlement of scores.

The hotel located in one of Costa Rica’s most visited tourist area was renovated in 2007 and run by the Ruiz family. The  Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ) say there was no demand for money or other threats.

Robbery was also ruled out by authorities, who are no investigating the possibility someone came to settle a score on the Ruiz family, though the motive is still unclear.
