NEW YORK, N.Y. -- (Newser / WDAF) -- "I found paradise and it's called Isla Ina," wrote Catherine Johannet on Jan. 28 on Instagram of an island off Panama's coast. It would be the 23-year-old's final post.
The 2015 Columbia University grad was found dead Sunday afternoon on the country's Bastimentos Island. Now the New York Daily News cites Panama's La Prensa in reporting an initial autopsy suggests she was strangled.
Eight people from Bastimentos Island have been detained in the investigation, according to a new La Prensa report, but no charges had been filed as of Wednesday afternoon.
