Body found in Costa Rica is missing Florida woman

Body of Missing Tourist Carla Stefaniak Found in Costa Rica

The family of a Miami woman, who went missing in Costa Rica, is going to the morgue to view a body found near her last known location.

Tuesday afternoon, officials announced that the body appears to be Stefaniak, though they were waiting on fingerprint information to confirm.

We have spoken to Airbnb officials, who say they have reached out to both Carla's family as well as the FBI, OIJ and the local embassy.

Stefaniak and April Burton, Stefaniak's sister-in-law, traveled to Costa Rica Thanksgiving weekend.

Reports have confirmed that Carla Stefaniak, who disappeared in Costa Rica last week while she was on vacation, appears to have been found dead on the property where she had been staying. Martinez, who was in the room next to where Stefaniak was staying, gave contradictory statements to police when he was questioned, Espinoza said.

Her sister-in-law, April Antonieta, wrote in a Facebook post that on the day she went missing that Stefaniak had taken an Uber from Thrifty vehicle rental. The last time her family had heard from the victim was November 27, when she wrote in a group chat on WhatsApp till her phone got switched off around 9 p.m. local time.

The 36-year-old woman was due to return home November 28, but never made her flight. It was discovered partially buried in plastic bags in a mountainous area.

When Jaime got to the airport around 5pm, she went inside to wait for her friend.

"None of us really believe this 5 a.m. story because it really doesn't make sense", Burton told Tampa's Fox 13 News. "It's pretty sketchy here", she wrote", according to CBS News.

Stefaniak reportedly FaceTimed a friend around 7:30 p.m. Burton returned to Tampa last Tuesday, but Stefaniak was scheduled to head back the following day.

Authorities have detained a 32-year-old security guard named Bismark Espinosa Martinez in connection with her death, said Walter Espinoza, director general of Costa Rica's Judicial Investigation Department.

"All the data we've compiled points to this being her; however, we want a determination that is more precise, more technical and more scientific", said Espinoza.

The night prior to Stefaniak's flight, she took an Uber downtown and was dropped off at an Airbnb in San Jose.

He lived in the same Airbnb where Stefaniak was staying.

"Words can not express the devastation within her family and friends", the Facebook post said. To BBC, he said, "It's a terrible wait, and every single minute that Costa Rican officials are not showing the body is just a tremendous amount of pain on the family". "We will update everyone as soon as we know".

That same night, she was Facetiming with a friend in NY when the call dropped about 9pm.

"The case continues to be under investigation", Espinoza said. Ms Stefaniak had planned to fly back to the U.S. the following day but never arrived for her flight.
