A 67-year-old woman with the last name of Cavajal died early Thursday when someone came to her home on a pretext and then shot her. That was in Las Gavetas in Hatillo 5. She died a short time later at Hospital San Juan de Dios.
The woman operated a money-lending business, and the visitor, who came at 2 a.m., pretended to be paying back a loan, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.
In an unrelated case, a 16-year old died in El Roble, Alajuela, from blows to the head, said investigators. She lived near the scene and was found in a park.
