“We are in this moment in full investigation, seeing and crossing a series of lines within these first hours, that is very important in this type of cases”, said Boraschi.

Investigators at the crime scene

The 49-year-old prosecutor was shot at his home in Desamparados after leaving his office late Wednesday night, around 11:00 pm. It was shortly after midnight, as he entered the garage of his home, multiple shooters opened fire at close range, impacting their target with six bullets that hit the head and neck, as well as the left shoulder and arm, according to Wálter Espinoza, head of the Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ).

Hurt, the prosecutor slammed the car against the wall of the garage, waking up his 78-year-old mother inside, who immediately called for help.

This year he had worked in the prosecutor’s offices in Grecia, San Ramón and San Joaquín de Flores (Heredia).
