Airbnb removed Villa le Mas - a compound with seven vacation apartments - from its site and said Wednesday that it had reached out to family members to offer condolences.
The body of Carla Stefaniak, a USA citizen who went missing late last last month while staying at an apartment complex outside the capital of San Jose, has been found, her family confirmed.
Her family was finally allowed to see her body late Tuesday night - more than 15 hours after it was found.
A posting on the "Finding Carla " Facebook page says Costa Rican authorities let the family view her body.
"Words can not express the devastation within her family and friends", a post on the "Finding Carla" Facebook page said. We want the world to know that we will never forget Carla, ' the tribute post read.
"We will never forget the joy she brought into our lives, how much she made us laugh". Here's what we know so far about what happened. "May god bless her soul", the post said. "This guy shook our hands, looked us in the eye and told us his story", Stefaniak's brother, Carlos Caicedo, said. Investigators said blood was found in his nearby apartment. He worked as a security guard at the Airbnb where Stefaniak was staying. Pictured above is the AirBnb rental where she was staying.
The Facebook page, set up to search for the missing tourist who was believed to have been kidnapped, also revealed it would not stop posting and following up on the story, which has garnered global attention.
Detectives who interviewed people who had contact with the suspect, Espinoza Martinez, before Stefaniak went missing on November 28 grew suspicious when they noticed his statements were contradictory, Espinoza, the government spokesman, told reporters.
The owner of the Airbnb told relatives she was seen entering an Uber with her luggage around 5 a.m. Wednesday, but Uber records do not show a transaction. Investigators said he was taken into custody after they reviewed surveillance video, which showed contradictions in his statements following Stefaniak's disappearance last week.
Almost a week had passed since Stefaniak's relatives and friends in Florida embarked on an global search after she failed to return from her birthday celebration in Costa Rica.

Stefaniak and Burton had been texting each other via WhatsApp, Burton said. She died from the neck injury, a medical examiner said. She had checked in for her flight but never got on the plane, concerning her family and friends. Stefaniak also failed to respond to a number of birthday messages from family and friends.
Stefaniak, who was an insurance agent, loved to travel and post photos on Instagram. That was the last conversation she's known to have had with anyone she knew. It featured her in a turquoise bathing suit, lying near a pool with tropical plants in the background. "I'm going to miss this place", she wrote.
