Judicial agents said that robbers killed a guard at an isolated finca over the weekend.
A neighbor found the guard, who had the last name of Hernández mortally wounded Saturday. The 68-year-old man died later at the Hospital de Guápiles from a bullet wound in the stomach, agents said.
The finca is in the mountains at a location called Colonia Kubujuki de Sarapiquí. Intruders sacked two homes on the finca, agents said.
