An Heredia woman expat has died, the apparent victim of a home invader.
She was killed on her own property, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.
A gardener found the body of the woman in a water tank when he arrived at the home in San Isidro de Heredia about 8 a.m. Friday, the agency said. She was about 55, they said.
The woman lived alone, and agents said that the glass on a door had been broken. Presumably that is how the murderer or murderers entered the home. Agents also said that the home had been ransacked, and it appears some items had been taken.
