“San Pedro Police responded to Mora Laguna Resort, which is located about a mile off San Pedro on the north side. Upon arrival they found forty-one-year-old Christina Adriana Pott, a Canadian national, with four apparent stab wounds to the body. She was taken to the San Pedro Polyclinic where she was admitted and she was just discharged this morning with injuries classified as grievous harm.
