30 years ago, La Cruz de Alajuelita massacre began the worst series of killings in Costa Rican history
Thirty years ago Wednesday, the massacre of six girls and one woman at La Cruz de Alajuelita above San José, Costa Rica set off a chain of gruesome killings that remain unsolved.
Authorities say they may have captured the serial killer terrorizing drug-addicted prostitutes in San José's slums. A suspect has been tied to three of the bodies through DNA evidence.

As a serial killer who has murdered eight impoverished women near Costa Rica's capital remains on the loose, police are trying to come up with answers and leads that can point them in the direction of their suspect.
