A woman’s body, in a state of decomposition, was found in Barangay Ambonao late Tuesday afternoon, March 23.
P/Lt. Colonel Ferdinand de Asis, Calasiao chief of police, said the victim, estimated to be around 25 to 50 years old, was found by a goat herder submerged under the creek, covered with water lilies.
“Pauwi na po siya nang may maamoy siyang masangsang. Sinundan niya yung amoy hanggang sa matuklasan niya yung bangkay sa tubig na tinakpan ng mga water lily”, said de Asis in an interview.
He believes the body drifted and got entangled in the water lilies in the area.
De Asis described the victim as around 5 feet in height, slender structure, and shoulder-length hair. Unfortunately, identifying marks, such as scars, moles, or birthmarks were visible, as the body is under the state of decomposition, save for a necklace she wore.
Her lower garments are missing, hinting a possibility of the victim being raped before being killed. The examiner also found a wound in the back of the head, and strangulation marks which may have been the cause of her death.
De Asis immediately ordered the review reports of missing persons in Calasiao and in neighboring towns and cities, to no avail.
The body was immediately buried after retrieval. However, de Asis said it may be exhumed for further identification. (Ahikam Pasion)
