Investigation conducted by Talomo police showed that the incident happened around 7 p.m. The victim told the police that as soon as she got home from work, she noticed that the light in the master's bedroom was already turned on and the things inside in disarray.

The suspects gained entry by climbing the perimeter wall and forcing open the sliding glass door at the dining room. The suspects also forced their way in the master's bedroom and office by destroying the door knobs.
Police have extracted fingerprints from the crime scene but suspects are yet to be identified as the fingerprints are yet to undergo examination. (Ruji Peter S. Abat)
