MANILA -- The body of a young woman was unearthed in Barangay San Antonio in Noveleta, Cavite Sunday morning.
The victim was identified as Karen Aguirre, 16, who has been missing since August 14.
Her body, which was put inside a sack, was found after her parents received a text message telling them where to find it.
The victim sustained small stab wounds on her neck.
According to P/Insp. Gilbert Perla, deputy chief of Noveleta Police Station, they are still investigating whether Aguirre's death is connected to the death of her friend, whose body was found in Barangay Sta. Rosa.
They are also determining whether the two deaths are connected to the death of one of Noveleta's most wanted criminals last July 31.
The criminal was said to be a friend of the two victims.
Aguirre's body was found behind the house of the said most wanted criminal. -- report from Dennis Datu, DZMM
