A 41-year-old woman listed as a drug per­son­al­ity was found dead with one of her eyes miss­ing in­side her shanty in Mal­abon City, Satur­day morn­ing, a be­lated re­port said.

Po­lice iden­ti­fied the fa­tal­ity as Leanor Ru­flo, who was in­cluded in the drug watch­list in Barangay Ton­suya.

Ru­flo, ac­cord­ing to re­ports, was found dead by her daugh­ter in­side their shanty on P. Aquino St. in Barangay Ton­suya, Mal­abon.

The daugh­ter of the fa­tal­ity, Mi­amor, 17, said that her mother’s left eye was miss­ing when she was about to wake up her mother that morn­ing.

PO2 Jose Ger­mi­nal II, case in­ves­ti­ga­tor, said that they were also shocked when they saw the body. The sus­pect said that the left eye of Ru­flo was eaten by a rat.

Po­lice said the shanty of the fa­tal­ity was near a creek where many rats dwell.

“The daugh­ter of the vic­tim told us that her mother was ill… We sus­pect that her left eye was eaten by rats af­ter she died,” Ger­mi­nal said.

“We were shocked. It was our first time to see some­thing like this,” he said.

Po­lice are con­duct­ing a thor­ough probe to know if there’s a foul play be­hind Ru­flo’s death.
