Chief prosecutor opens long-stalled serial killing prob

The nation’s chief prosecutor seems to be swept up in the emotions of the International Day against Violence toward Women. He has ordered the reopening in a long-shelved serial murder case.

The so-called psychopath stalked couples in Costa Rica from 1986 to 1996. He killed 19 and sometimes extracted human organs from the victims.

The murders were done with a firearm and a knife.

Officials have said for years that they think they know who the killer was and that he has died.

The chief prosecutor, Jorge Chavarría, said he was assigning the case to a special murder team.  The killer did not attack just women.
