Personal life[edit]

Marshall was a son of Dennis Marshall Herron, a former Costa Rica national team player.[8]


On 23 June 2011, Marshall and his girlfriend, Meilyn Arianna Masís Castro, were traveling on the Braulio Carrillo highway in Costa Rica when they were involved in a fatal car accident 20 kilometres (12 mi) east of San José while on their way to Marshall's parents in Limón.[9] Marshall had scored the only goal for Costa Rica five days earlier in a match against Honduras in the quarterfinals of the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup.[10][11]

His death was marked in several ways in his home country. The president of Costa Rica, Laura Chinchilla, went on national television and expressed her sympathy and a memorial ceremony was held on Estadio Eladio Rosabal Cordero, the stadium of Marshall's former club, CS Herediano.
