December 18, 2018

During a pre-birthday celebration in Costa Rica, 36-year-old Florida native, Carla Stefanik, was brutally murdered, leaving her family with numerous unanswered questions.

Stefanik had a zest for life and loved to travel. Never could she have imagined that on her vacation she would lose her life in a brutal way. She was expected to arrive back home in Tampa, Florida, on November 28. The day came and went with no sign whatsoever of Stefanik. This immediately set off red flags.

On November 27, Stefanik checked into her flight online. Sources state that she also text her sister-in-law and told her that “conditions were pretty sketchy at the resort where she was staying.”

Stefanik was traveling with her sister-in-law, April Burton. Burton had to cut her trip short due to obligations back in Florida, so Stefanik agreed to take her back to the airport. After being dropped off, the two women exchanged text messages well into the night.

Days after her reported disappearance, her body was discovered covered in plastic bags in a wooded area near the resort in which she was staying. Autopsy reports confirm that her cause of death was sustained head injuries and multiple stab wounds to the neck.

As of now, the authorities have narrowed in on one suspect in particular: the resort security guard. 32-year-old Bismarck Espinosa Martinez had undergone questioning about Stefanik’s disappearance but later contradicted his own story.

Stefanik’s family took to social media to address their suspicions on the situation: “In fact, the doubt extends to that there may be up to three or four possible people involved. We have been saying this since day 1. This was organized by more than one person as soon as Carla booked that place.”
