2 American Women Found Shot Dead
Two 19-year-old American women were found shot to death near a Caribbean beach town in Costa Rica, security officials said. The bodies were found Monday along a highway near the town of Cahuita. Officials identified the victims as Emily Howell of Lexington, Ky., and Emily Eagen of Detroit. Scott Warren, dean of students at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, said Howell was a student at the college who had been in the Central American nation since January on a photography project. Eagen was a former student who was visiting her. He said authorities were uncertain about the motivation for the attack.
