Missing tourist Carla Stefaniak’s body identified in Costa Rica

A dead body found in Costa Rica was identified on Tuesday as a missing Florida woman, a report said.

The remains of Carla Stefaniak, 36, were discovered near the Airbnb where she had been staying in the Central American country, according to Florida’s WPLG-TV.

A 32-year-old man was arrested for her murder, the station said.

Stefaniak had traveled to Costa Rica to celebrate her 36th birthday, relatives said.

The last time her family heard from her was the night of Nov. 27 when she texted her sister-in-law that the lights were going on and off.

“It’s pretty sketchy here,” she wrote in a text.

Her body was found by cadaver dogs on Monday partially buried in the ground and covered with plastic bags behind the apartment complex that housed her Airbnb.

Blood was found inside the apartment.

The man arrested for the killing had worked at the apartment complex, the station said.
