A 38-year-old woman who had consistently rebuffed her ex-partner’s efforts at a reconciliation was killed by the latter who stabbed her several times in Tondo, Manila the other day.
Dead-on-arrival at the Ospital ng Tondo due to multiple stab wounds in the body was victim Janet Santos, of No. 783 Interior 31, Ma. Guizon St., Daang Bakal, Tondo, Manila. The suspect, identified as Patrick Francisco Ramos, 71, of Laong Nasa Street in Tondo, Manila, also died later on the same day due to a massive heart attack.
SPO1 Jorlan Taluban of the Manila Police District-Homicide Section said the stabbing took place at around 1 p.m.inside the victim’s home.
The victim was reportedly doing her laundry when the suspect arrived and offered a reconciliation. After rejecting the idea, the victim turned her back and went on with her chores.
The suspect took out a knife and stabbed the victim several times until she fell bloodied on the floor. He then fled on foot while the victim’s neighbours rushed her to the nearest hospital.
At 8:29 p.m., the MPD’s homicide section received a call from the Tondo General Hospital reporting that Ramos had died there.
Homicide prober SPO2 Lester Evangelista said the suspect died in the said hospital’s emergency room due to a massive heart attack.
Police though, theorized that Ramos might have been attacked by his conscience for what he did to the victim.
The suspect’s children told probers that they had planned to surrender their father to the police before he suffered an attack.
It was learned that the suspect initially hid in the house of his friend where he suffered an attack.
The two were said to have been together for six years and had a five-year-old adopted child but broke up recently. Efforts by the suspect at reconciliation were consistently rebuffed by the victim.
