Murder of 15 year old appears to spark suicide

A tragic love story ended in a murder and suicide Thursday.

The murder victim was a 15 year old Coronado girl who was seven months pregnant. She was identified by the last name of Rodríguez by the Judicial Investigating Organization.

Agents still do not know the reason why the girl was shot in the throat. The immediate suspicion fell on the man in his late 20s who has been the companion of the girl for a year and a half.

The girl died shortly after reaching Hospital Calderón Guardia.

The shooting took place in San Antonio de Coronado about 1 a.m., agents said. A search was begun for the man, but a jogger came upon his body along Ruta 32 later Thursday morning. The man was shot once in the head, and the jogger said that he had a pistol in his hand. The dead man is believed to have been a security guard.
