MANILA - Authorities in Parañaque are investigating the death of a woman inside one of the subdivisions located in the city.

In a text message, Parañaque Public Information Officer Mar Jimenez said the 74-year old victim was found dead, with multiple stab wounds, inside her home in Barangay Marcelo on Thursday evening. 

The Parañaque police are looking at robbery as the motive of the crime. 

Investigators said the suspects may have been observing movements in the house for quite some time.

The local government however, denied the murder had links with the enhanced community quarantine, noting they have increased security patrols in the area.
