Another name added to the list of weekend murder victims

Another name has been added to the weekend murder toll, and a second man suffered injuries, both Sunday evening.

Both men appear to have been victims of robberies.

A.M. Costa Rica reported Monday that seven persons died from Friday through Sunday. However, a 50-year-old man with the last name of Porras was not included in the total. He died about 5:50 p.m. Sunday in Parismina de Guácimo on Ruta 32.

His body was found in the middle of the highway, and investigators believe that he was the victim of a robbery while riding his motorcycle.

His motorcycle was not found, and the suspicion is that two men on a second motorcycle drove up behind him and shot him. Then one of the men drove off with the stolen motorcycle.

Porras was headed to Siquirres.

The wounded man has the last name of Herrera. He is 24. Investigators said he was confronted by four men in the La Carpio sector. They sought to rob him, but he resisted. He received three bullet wounds about 11 p.m.
