Jackson Hole, WY – Suspects in the death of Wilson resident, Karen Culclough, may be in custody, although details are unclear.

Local Nicaraguan authorities are handling the case of the death of Karen Culclough, whose body was found outside a hotel in Montelimar, Nicaragua where she and her small church group were resting after a mission trip.

The Boston Globe reported that Karen’s father Douglas Colclough said in a phone interview from Lynnfield, MA on Tuesday that the Managuan Embassy told him that one or two suspects were in custody in his daughter’s death, but specific information was not available.

The latest post to the Facebook Page “Find Karen Colclough,” set up by family friend, Victoria Howland reads:

“It is unclear when Karen’s body will be flown back to MA (where her parents live). This is because an autopsy needs to be performed in Nicaragua because

1) the murder occurred there

2) they have two suspects in custody.”

The US Embassy in Nicaragua said earlier today that they could neither confirm or deny whether a suspect had been apprehended.

Don Manning, President of Argos International, an aid group that organized the trip said, “Even if I had that information, I couldn’t give it to you, because I would not want to compromise the investigation.”
