The 25-year-old Mexican woman, named Maria Mathus Tenorio, decided to go on an adventure around the world in order to share her music.
She posted a photo on social media before starting the trip with the message: “Today my trip starts after a long time wishing to travel all around the planet alone.
“The time has arrived to be full of nature. Costa Rica, pure life”.
Official sources report that Maria and a Brit woman she met while travelling were together on the beach when they were assaulted by two men who tried to rob them.
The Brit woman managed to escape and find a security guard who she asked for help.
However Mathus Tenorio was cornered and her attacker reportedly assaulted, raped, and then drowned the young woman in the sea.
