(posted April 14, 9:52 pm) —The parents of 37-year-old Karen Colclough got the phone call that every parent fears — their daughter was found dead.
Colclough’s body was found about a quarter mile north of the Barceló, Montelimar, according to statements by the family to local media in Massachusetts. She went missing on Friday, when she apparently wandered off the hotel grounds to go for a walk.
CBS Boston reports that Colclough’s parents, who live in Lynnfield, Massachusetts, were told a suspect is in custody in Nicaragua, and the case is being treated as a murder.
Details of the investigation have not been made public. Nicaraguan Police have not yet released any statements about the case.
