Glamorous Life in Costa Rica Ends in Orgy and Murder

Lying naked, handcuffed and shot in the head after a night of partying, girls and expensive cars is not likely the glamorous end that Canadian national Brad Deering, a.k.a. Brat Pering had in mind. An amateur boxer and student of martial arts, Deering had set himself up in a luxurious home in the gated community of Pozos de Santa Ana. Neighbors report the home was a frequent destination of beautiful women, and the garage contained a Porsche Cayenne, Audi TT and a race car used at the Autodrómo La Guácima.


Details of the Deering’s final party in Costa Rica are starting to emerge from witness reports and press releases from judicial investigators (OIJ). Assailants are believed to have gained access to the home by posing as uniformed security guards. Investigators also believe unidentified women were used to case the home and Deering’s lifestyle.

When the assault started, Deering was partying with friends, which included several women of Colombian nationality. An article in La Extra described the party as an orgy where Deering was literally caught with his pants down. While still naked Deering managed to get out of the house and run 25 meters before suffering a gunshot to the head. A photo of his nude, bodied and handcuffed body appeared today in the edition of Diario Extra.

Brad Deering was also fixture in Central Pacific Beach town of Jaco, and frequented the “Lux Lounge” known as Le Loft. Described on one Internet forum as “over the top flashy”, it was not uncommon for Peering to publish photos of cash and expensive cars, complete with license plate numbers on facebook. He is also described as an aggressive deal maker who racked up his share of enemies since coming to Costa Rica in 2003.
