A BODY of a woman was found in a creek in Sitio Kalubihan, Barangay Talamban, Cebu City Saturday morning, October 24, 2020.

Police believe the body, which was placed in a sack and was already in a state of decomposition, was just dumped in the area.

Police Captain Jonathan Taneo, chief of the Talamban Police Station, said they could not identify the body as its head, arms and legs were chopped off.

"Lawas ra ang nakit-an. Walay ulo, walay mga kamot, tiil ug mga kamot ang maong babaye. Nanglag na usab ang parte sa iyang kalawasan," said Taneo.

Scene of the Crime Operatives who responded to the area did not also find pieces of evidence that could help identify the body.

Investigation is ongoing. (BBT)
