Heredia medical office drama ends in death

The latest murder of a woman appears to be the result of a love affair gone wrong, a married professional man not willing to live up to the results of his actions and a confrontation that led to death.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said that the murder came to light Tuesday when passers-by saw a physician in Heredia dragging the body of a woman through the corridor of his office. That was about 7 a.m. Police came and judicial agents identified the woman as a 23-year-old Nicaraguan citizen. She had the last name of Dávila.

Arrested was the 32-year-old physician. The doctor’s office was in Barrio Los Angeles in Heredia not far from the former hospital, and informal reports said that the man shared the office with his wife of four years, a psychologist.

The body went to the Morgue Judicial for a full autopsy, but judicial agents said the woman suffered from a stab wound to the neck. She may have had her throat cut. She also had other injuries. Informal reports suggest that the woman might have been pregnant.
