TWO unidentified bodies of a man and a decomposing woman were found in separate places in Batangas and Laguna, police reported yesterday.
The male body was found by a farmer in a sugarcane plantation in Sitio Kakawatihan, Bgy. Putol, Balayan, Batangas, the other day.
Balayan police head Chief Insp. Christopher Guste described the body as about 30-40 years old, of medium built, thick black hair, fair complexion, 5’3” to 5’4” in height, wearing blue T-shirt and denim short pants.
Detectives SPO1 Ambrocio Duman, PO3 Roderick Botavarra, PO1 Francis Joymer Abiad said that at 6:45 a.m. the other day, farm worker Florencio Marquez discovered the body at the sugarcane plantation after which he reported it to barangay officials, who responded to the scene and reported it to the police.
The victim’s body was bloodied, his arms were bound with duct tape and his head bore gunshot wounds in the head.
Investigators immediately cordoned off the crime scene and requested assistance from the Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) technicians.
No identification was obtained from the body of the victim and he was not known in the town and they believed that the slain man was killed somewhere and dumped in their jurisdiction, Guste said.
In Laguna, a decomposing body of a woman, believed to have been raped, was discovered on a vacant lot on Feder Road, Bgy. Quinale, Paete, Laguna, Tuesday afternoon.
A report to acting Laguna police director Senior Supt. Joel Pernito said the victim, who was only wearing bra, has yet to be identified by the police.
Wilson Cabugayan Beranda, 57, a farm caretaker, of Bgy. Longos, Kalayaan town, discovered the lifeless body of the victim at about 1 p.m. while he was clearing the vacant lot in the barangay.
Barangay Kagawad Rogelio Caguin immediately informed the Paete police and asked the SOCO assistance on the rape victim.
The victim, believed to have been killed elsewhere, was dumped in the said barangay by unidentified assailants, whose identities are still being determined by police investigators.
