When a beautiful place's looks can deceive

"Student Body"

A lovely 23-year-old American biology student goes to Costa Rico to study a rare species of fern and ends up dead in the grass.

How can this happen in an idyllic country many consider one of the safer enclaves in Latin America?

Shannon's mother was determined to find out. She spent $250,000 of her own money to investigate and finally bring justice to her daughter, who had traveled to Golfito as part of a now-defunct University of Kansas study-abroad program that just happened to be based near a drug-trafficking channel.

It seems a local lowlife had been attracted to Shannon and wound up killing her when she rebuffed his advances. Now he and his confederates are behind bars.

This show seems to imply that Shannon may have been too trusting and perhaps was inebriated on the night of her death -- she was killed after walking rather gingerly from a rowdy bar all by herself around midnight.

This insensitively titled episode drives home the dictum that all that glitters isn't gold, even in a tropical haven.
