Costa Rican supermodel robbed in her car

October 12, 2011

Thieves broke the window and looted the valuables from a car driven by Costa Rican supermodel Leonora Jiménez on Tuesday night, according to a post on her Facebook page Wednesday morning. The mugging took place in Lindora, in west San José.

“They broke the window of my car, they threatened me, they disrespected me and they stole everything I had,” Jiménez wrote. “I am officially part of the statistics.”

Jiménez is a former Miss Asia International contestant and host of the 2007 television series Super Model Central America – a reality TV program similar to America’s Next Top Model.

“When you get robbed, material possessions don’t matter so much,” the supermodel wrote on her Facebook page. “But to rob someone of their peace of mind, that’s the greater crime.”

The Facebook post generated 75 comments offering support from fans and friends and, strangely, received 105 “Likes.”
