Costa Rica News – Well this is actually a good way to get information in Costa Rica. Throw some money out there and see the piranhas start circling. There is no honor among thieves as seen everyday with the Costa Rican government. I think they need to up the bounty to about $15,000 to get someone to bite though. That person will lead them right to the bodies for cash and immunity. The Embassy of France informed the Judicial Investigation Organization (OIJ) to give a reward of $ 7,000 to the person providing verifiable information on the whereabouts of the marriage documents of Gerard and Claude Dubois, who came for holidays in Costa Rica and disappeared on March 31, 2011 in Quepos.
The couple was last seen when they left the hotel to visit Playa Dominical, in the canton of Osa, Puntarenas.
The rented vehicle they were traveling in was found on April 4, 2011 abandoned near the Naranjo River Bridge, 10 kilometers from Quepos.
The vehicle was had one of the side glass windows broken, causing a pedestrian injury, authorities presume.
An employee of the Municipality of Garabito found the couple’s passports on April 5 of 2011 in a dumpster in Jacó.
Judicial Police also determined that the missing cards were used at various businesses in the area.
Since then the authorities have undertaken several actions to try to determine what happened to the marriage documents but actions have been unsuccessful.
Even on 10 February this year the researchers were at a farm in San Antonio de Damas, in Quepos, as they received information that the bodies of the foreigners were buried there, but in the end they found nothing.
The OIJ reported today that if someone has important information that can help authorities to clarify this case, the phone can provide to 2234-4188 of the French Embassy.
The reward will be delivered by the Embassy to the person providing the data actually show positive results with the finding of the couple reported the OIJ.
I think that they should offer money to find out where the bodies are, not where the marriage documents are located. Seems a bit more important.
