Investigators are classifying a Canadian woman’s death at her home in Playa de Cocos as an accident.
The woman, 79-year-old Lorraine Nadon, was found dead at the foot of her stairs in her Las Begonias condominiums where she lived with her husband, the Judicial Investigating Organization reported. Rescue responders said they received the call at about 11:30 a.m. Sunday from the husband. He said he awoke to find his wife dead in the apartment, they said. Officials presume that she fell down the stairs.
When investigators arrived, they said they found no signs of foul play or marks on the body indicating a bullet or knife wound. They say no one has been detained in relation to the case and an autopsy will determine the exact cause of death.
