A horrifying incident unfolded during a bachelor’s exam in Limon, resulting in the tragic death of Jazmin Torez Rankin, a dedicated and hard-working mother.
The shooting has left the community in shock and the authorities scrambling to uncover the motive behind this senseless act of violence.
In a recent interview, Johansel, the grieving son, revealed his mother’s ambitions and unyielding work ethic. She consistently strived to better herself and worked on a cruise ship.
The exam she was taking marked a significant step in her journey towards obtaining her bachelor’s degree.
According to the Judicial Investigation Agency (OIJ), preliminary indications suggest that the shooting could be linked to a settling of accounts.
Two assailants, their faces concealed, entered the classroom where Jazmin Torez Rankin was seated and mercilessly opened fire. She sustained fatal gunshot wounds to her head, chest, and buttocks.
Tragically, the 42-year-old woman was pronounced dead by the Ministry of Public Security (MSP) shortly after 8:00 pm on Tuesday. The Regional Directorate of the Ministry of Public Education (MEP) in Guápiles de Pococí promptly activated the necessary protocols in response to the incident.
As the investigation unfolds, the motive behind this apparent settling of accounts remains shrouded in uncertainty. Law enforcement agencies are diligently working to unravel the circumstances leading up to this harrowing act of violence, leaving no stone unturned in their pursuit of justice for Jazmin Torez Rankin and her grieving family.
As the case remains under investigation, the Limon community stands united in support of the grieving family, demanding answers and seeking justice. The quest for closure intensifies, fueled by a collective determination to honor Jazmin Torez Rankin’s memory and prevent similar tragedies from befalling others.
