I have been following this tragic story since the first posting,mainly as I was also in Copacobana and La Paz about 4 months ago.Its hard to beleive that in such wonderful places,such horrible things can happen.
I pray for the hearts of friends and family,and eternal peace for Katharina&Peter

I was told by some locals in Peru last year that this type of thing was increasingly happening around La Paz, and was warned to forget my plan to cross into Bolivia.

I didn't really take it too seriously then, but it just goes to show ...

My prayers go out to the family and friends.
