BREAKING NEWS: Murder in Brasilito
Well, I must say – this was one of the most exciting, tragic and unsettling Costa Rica news stories that I have ever written. A U.S. tourist visiting Brasilito was shot twice across the street from Kokomo bar, drove his car 400 meters down a curvy road, and then bled to death while waiting 30-40 minutes for an ambulance. You can read more about the story at the Tico Times. It’s called U.S. Tourist Bleeds to Death from Gunshot Wounds While Waiting for an Ambulance . Charming.
For those of you that want to see some gore, sorry to disappoint. But here is a photo of the bloodstain in the road.
And here’s a photo of a random, drunk Santa that came by to take the edge off as I was researching this tragedy.
