Investigators seek help in identifying slain woman

A farm worker found the body of a woman in a mango grove Wednesday morning, and so far investigators have not been able to identify her. She had been strangled.

Agents estimate that she was about 50 years old. Residents of the area have said they do not know her. There is the possibility that she was taken from some other place to her death in the field in Orotina.

The scene was made to look like a sex crime, but agents also said the woman had been beaten around the head. The main piece of evidence that they have is a ring the woman wore. It is silver and says kinder and bears the images of two children holding hands and a sunrise. Investigators said that any information should be telephoned to the agency’s confidential line 800-8000-645.
