Costa Rican authorities are investigating the death of U.S. citizen with the last name Hendrix, whose body they found in an apartment in San José’s Barrio Escalante, the Judicial Investigation Organization said in a press release yesterday.
 
Agents found Hendrix with a gash in his throat, “apparently caused by an edged weapon, but the preliminary results from the autopsy will have to determine the exact cause of death,” the bulletin said.
