Bulgaria: Kidnapped Salvadorian Journalist was Found Dead Source: Twitter

SAN SALVADOR: A Salvadoran journalist reported missing Sunday has been found dead on the side of a road, according to media reports.

According to media reports, the body of Karla Turcios, 33, was found on a highway on the outskirts of Santa Rosa Guachipilin, 100 kilometres northeast of San Salvador.

Journalist Karla Turcios was murdered,” the newspaper La Prensa Grafica — a sister title of El Economista magazine, where the mother-of-one worked — tweeted.

A source from the Salvadoran public prosecutor’s office told AFP the body of an apparently strangled woman was found on a highway in the Santa Rosa Guachipilin area — but there were no identifying documents available and the body was transferred for forensic analysis.

La Prensa Grafica said Turcios’ husband identified her body by her clothes and a scar.

“We sympathize with your family in these hard times,” the newspaper wrote on Twitter, sharing a photograph of Turcios.

Turcios had been reported as missing by her family and the newspaper earlier on Sunday.
