A RETIRED public school teacher was found dead in her home in a west coast village in Zamboanga City, the police reported Saturday.

The police said the victim was found dead around 7 a.m. Thursday inside her bedroom by her neighbor, who immediately reported to the police.
The police said the victim could have been killed days earlier since her body was already in a state of advanced decomposition when discovered dead.
The victim bore three stab wounds and her hands hogtied, the police said.
The motive of the incident could be robbery as it was discovered that the victim’s undetermined amount of cash and one unit cellular phone were missing, the police said.
Investigation continues in a bid to unmask the suspect or suspects, the police added.
