Two bodies found last Friday in Los Lagos in the province of Heredia, north of San José, were identified as Mexicans German Lugo, 33, and Federico Alonso Dávalos, 49, according to the daily La Nación.
The two men were found dead, wrapped in bedsheets and with plastic bags around their heads. Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) Director Jorge Rojas said both men died of asphyxiation. The motive for these crimes remains undetermined and the investigation is ongoing.
Lugo was the owner of Aero Pacífico, a company registered to offer air taxi services. Another one of Lugo’s companies, Agropecuaria Muy Lindo Mulisa S.A., owned a hangar at the Tobías Bolaños International Airport. The hangar housed an airplane that did not seem to be used and lacked legal permits.
