Residents of Barangay Sto. Domingo in Quezon City woke up to a shocking sight of three bodies lying near the corner of Tirad Pass and Biak na Bato streets yesterday.
Wrapped in black garbage bags, the bodies are believed to be victims of summary execution, according to the police.
The bodies were discovered at 5:30 a.m. by Nap Estamio, a resident who informed barangay authorities.
Police said one of the victims is about 30 to 35 years old, 5-4 tall, fair-skinned, medium built and wearing a black T-shirt and denim pants. Inscribed on his abdomen were names “Anna,” “Rica,” “Doddie,” “Milo,” and “Manuel” in addition to several other tattoos on his hand and body.
The second victim, meanwhile, was described to be around 45-50 years old, 5’1” tall, medium built, fair-skinned, and clad in black sando and brown cargo pants. Chinese characters were tattoed on his chest, the name “May” on his right hand, and others on different parts of his body.
The third victim was also assumed to be around 45-50 years old, 5’3” tall, medium built, fair skinned and wearing black T-shirt and denim pants. On his right hand were spider web and dragon tattoos and the name “Alex” on his lower back.
Crime scene investigators said the first victim sustained head injuries and a stab wound in his chest; the second had a gunshot wound in the head; while the last died of gunshot wounds in the back.
The area is surrounded by houses with high fences and is usually used by motorists to avoid congestion in nearby Quezon Boulevard.
No witness has come forward to provide information on how the bodies ended up there.
The bodies were brought to Pacheco Funeral Homes for proper disposition. (VANNE TERRAZOLA)
