Agents probe mystery death in presence of police officers

In a cryptic report Monday, judicial agents said they are investigating the case of a man who suffered four bullet wounds and died at a police checkpoint in Limón.

The Judicial Investigating Organization identified the dead man by the last name of Taylor and said the death took place about 10:30 a.m. The man was 24.

Agents said that four Fuerza Pública officers were present at the checkpoint. There were three men and a woman. Their firearms were confiscated for lab testing, said agents. However, the possibility exists that the man was shot before he reached the check point.

There was no explanation of what might have happened, and there was no report from the security ministry for which the police officers work.
