Marikina university exec slain

A university vice president was found dead with multiple knife wounds in the neck inside his house in Marikina City yesterday morning.

Superintendent Lorenzo Holanday, Marikina Police chief, identified the victim as Dr. Alfredo M. Dimaano, 44, vice president for academic affairs of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Marikina. Dimaano, a native of Surigao del Norte, was found lifeless inside his rented apartment unit at Block 2 Lot 48 Diamond corner Sapphire Street in Marikit Subdivision, Concepcion Uno.

Police said he succumbed to multiple knife wounds in the neck.

Dimaano, who used to leave early for work, did not emerge from his home when curious neighbors knocked at his door, prompting them to call the barangay officials and police.

It was gathered that Dimaano also worked as part-time assistant professor-lecturer at the DLSU where he took his doctorate degree.

Authorities are looking into robbery and work-related issue as possible motives behind the killing of Dimaano. (Madelynne Dominguez)
