Jacó resident murdered, and arrest made quickly

A 62-year-old Jacó man died early Thursday from a knife wound sustained in his small home in the center of the central Pacific community. The man was identified by the last name of López.

Persons nearby heard López call for help about 1 a.m. Thursday and found he had been stabbed. He went to the Clínica de Jacó and then to Hospital Monseñor Sanabria in Puntarenas where he died, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.

About 8:30 a.m. investigators made an arrest of a 25-year-old man in nearby Playa Herradura. A search of the man’s home yielded evidence, said agents. He was being held pending an autopsy report.
