Jairo Mora murder suspect posed with AK-47 on Facebook
A Jairo Mora murder suspect with the last names Cash López posted photos of himself wearing a jacket and hat similar to one seized during raids earlier this month, the Spanish-language online daily cryoy.com reported Wednesday.
According to crhoy.com two photos from June 7 and June 25 show Cash López in a camouflage jacket and a hat that investigators say he could have been wearing the night of the May 31 murder. The news site also found a photo of the suspect holding what appears to be an AK-47 in another photo.
At 3:20 p.m. on Wednesday, when The Tico Times checked Cash López’s Facebook page, the photos had been deleted.
Seven suspects are now in preventative detention awaiting trial. Cellphones and Internet access is forbidden in Costa Rican jails, but another suspect with the last names Salmón Meléndez posted on Facebook on Aug. 19 via a mobile device, weeks after his detention.
“I am going crazy, but I will charge forward like an elephant,” he wrote in the post.
The Judicial Investigation Police declined to comment on the recent post.
