Early this morning, San Pedro police recorded their first murder of the year when they found a woman bleeding from the neck at the entrance to an apartment complex in the San Juan area. The 23 year old worked as a waitress at a local bar and investigators believe that Honduran Johana Samantha Mendez's killer waited for her at the entrance to her apartment.

Not unusual to have to go get the police but for an assault, this is shameful. More egregious is the comment "Authorities say her blood was diluted from recently consuming alcohol." Not sure who the "Authorities" are but if they are doctors, they need to change careers.

She was in a risky business, far from home .... Very likely because she perceived no other prospects for a better life. I wish we all demanded more out of life for young single mothers. She did not deserve to die this way. And due to her lifestyle few will care, as evidenced by the dismissive comment by police related to her having been drinking. I doubt she willingly/happily chose to leave her child behind so she work in a "big boys sports bar". My heart breaks for her child, her family and the large numbers of women who are trapped in similar situations.

Further to possible motive (which police say was theft)..... Customarily the ladies are paid on Mondays and are paid in cash. If you follow the timelines of the report, she was assaulted in the early hours of Tuesday.
