MANILA, Philippines – Two minors were stabbed to death inside their own house in Barangay 12, Caloocan City, it was learned Monday.
The victims, aged 15 and 10, were found dead and without clothes.
According to the father of one of the victims, he left the two girls inside their house before 9 p.m. on Sunday. He only discovered the crime Monday.
"Nakita ko puro dugo, humingi ako ng tulong. Yung pulis na ang nakakita sa anak ko sa banyo,” he said.
The primary suspect in the murder is the victims’ neighbor Gilbert Fulloso, who was spotted outside the house with an unidentified man on the night of the crime.
"May mga patak ng dugo mula doon sa bahay ng biktima papunta sa bahay ng suspek. Nasabi din niya na may nasaksak daw siya sa mga kakuwentuhan niya,” explained Chief Inspector Rodrigo Soriano of the Caloocan Police.
Soriano said the police were able to recover Fulloso’s bloodied clothes in the crime scene and they are now with the Police Crime Laboratory for further investigation.
Authorities said they are still trying to determine the motive behind the murder since nothing was missing inside the victims’ house. The police said they will also investigate if the two victims were raped.
Police have already launched a manhunt to locate Fulloso. - from a report by Raffy Santos, ABS-CBN News
