Forty-five violent deaths took place during Semana Santa, the Judicial Investigating Organization said in releasing a full summary of crimes and mishaps. Though some crimes have been solved, more than half of the fatal incidents remain under investigation.
That includes a pending investigation on the death of a 4-year-old girl who died at her home in Desamparados.
A Judicial Investigating Organization representative said Monday that this total does not include deaths from natural causes. No North American tourists or expats were listed on the organization’s report.
The judicial agency’s report is authoritative because summaries released by the Cruz Roja only cover events in which the rescue agency was involved.
