Body found in Costa Rica where missing FL woman was staying

Carla Stefaniak

The body was found Monday in a wooded area behind the Villa Le Mas Airbnb Stefaniak was staying at in San Antonio de Escazú, a suburb of San José, Costa Rica.

Walter Espinoza, a government spokesman said in a press conference that they still can not provide any details or confirm that the body belongs to 36-year-old Stefaniak.

Now that Stefaniak has been identified by her family, they say they will continue to press Costa Rican officials for more information on who killed her.

She traveled to Costa Rica with her sister-in-law, April Burton, on November 22 to celebrate her birthday.

Costa Rican authorities believe a partially decomposed body found Monday is Carla Stefaniak, a 36-year-old USA citizen who was reported missing last week, said Walter Espinoza, of Costa Rica's Judicial Investigation Department. Martinez, who was in the room next to where Stefaniak was staying, gave contradictory statements to police when he was questioned, Espinoza said. A Gofundme account said she was last heard from around 8 p.m. on November 27 and she didn't show up for her 1 p.m. flight home the next day. The next day, Stefaniak failed to show up for her flight home and hasn't been heard from since.

Friends said she sent photos of herself out on the town and she bought a purse and earrings.

The last message her family had from her was: "It's pretty sketchy here".

Stefaniak then reportedly had a FaceTime exchange with another friend and said she was going to ask a security guard at the Airbnb to get her a bottled water.

Bismarck Espinoza Martinez, 32, the prime suspect, was arrested Tuesday in relation to her murder, after investigators swept the property and found blood stains in her and Martinez's rooms.

He lived in the same Airbnb where Stefaniak was staying.

The body was found buried in plastic bags behind the San Jose Airbnb where Stefaniak was vacationing, a rental that the Miami resident had her qualms about.

Costa Rican authorities have confirmed that the body belongs to her, and her death is now being investigated as a homicide, WSVN reported on December 4.

In a Facebook post Tuesday, Carla Stefaniak's family said they are heading to the morgue view the body. Stefaniak had also checked into the flight, Jaime said, which she always did.

Authorities are waiting for autopsy results, which could be released Tuesday. "She's not a person who doesn't talk to people", Jaime said.

"This is a complex case, and it's a hard case", Espinoza said. Caicedo said something didn't add up because his sister's flight was scheduled for 1:30 later that day and she was "never early for anything".

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