SCENE of the Crime Operatives (Soco) found Monday three bodies with multiple stab wounds inside a boarding house at Dizon Subdivision in Baguio City.
One of the victims, a 15-year-old girl was found with her underwear down and torn. She was lying face up with her legs spread at the end of the bed.
Also found dead was a 17-year-old student and the victims’ grandmother Donna (not her real name), about 60 years old.
An autopsy report confirmed that the 15-year-old girl was raped and bore 18 stab wounds. The 17-year-old had 27 stab wounds, while the grandmother had three.
The bodies were discovered when a relative of the victims, identified by the public information division of the Baguio City Police Office as Lemuel Nadarisay, called for police assistance around 10 p.m. on March 8.
Nadarisay said his relatives’ failure to answer his phone calls prompted him to seek assistance from police personnel at Station 2.
Upon reaching the boarding house, the police were met by the victims’ housemaid Glaiza Porte, who said no one was answering the door to the boarding house when she knocked.
Police forcibly opened the door and discovered the bodies.
Initial investigation showed that there were no indications of forced entry and all valuables were intact.
Follow-up investigation is being conducted regarding the motive of the crime and identity of the perpetrators.
The maid and Nadarisay are now under police custody for questioning.
