Sun.Star Davao - - FRONT PAGE -

MEM­BERS of the Davao City Po­lice Of­fice (DCPO) on July 29, Sun­day evening, iden­ti­fied the chopped fe­male body in a black garbage bag left in front of a pawn­shop along Ca­ban­tian Road, Buhangin District in Davao City, Sun­day morn­ing, as that of a deaf-mute woman whose fam­ily was look­ing for her since Thurs­day, July 26, 2018.

The vic­tim of the grue­some crime was iden­ti­fied as Margie Sa­pio Al­barico, 31, a res­i­dent of Talomo District. She was pos­i­tively iden­ti­fied by her fa­ther at the An­gel Fu­neral Par­lor.

DCPO re­ported that So­pri­ano Mat­u­ran Al-

barico, who is a car­pen­ter in Bu­nawan District, learned from the news via a ra­dio pro­gram at around 7:20 p.m. Sun­day that a dead woman was brought to a fu­neral par­lor. He went to check if that was of her miss­ing daugh­ter.

Be­fore the chopped body was found, the fa­ther re­vealed that the vic­tim left their house around 3 p.m. of July 26, Thurs­day, and failed to re­turn.

A garbage col­lec­tor, along with his other col­leagues, dis­cov­ered the garbage bag where the chopped up hu­man body was placed in a trans­par­ent plas­tic cel­lo­phane at around 5:45 a.m. dur­ing their reg­u­lar rounds.

The bag con­tained the head, both arms, both legs, and up­per torso. The lower torso was miss­ing.

DCPO spokesper­son Senior In­spec­tor Ma. Tere­sita Gas­pan said the tracker team of the of­fice and the Buhangin Po­lice Sta­tion are still con­duct­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion to es­tab­lish the mo­tive of the crime and iden­tify the sus­pect or sus­pects.
