A soon to be bride believed to be killed and raped by unidentified suspect was found in a canal the other day in La Carlota, Negros Occidental.
The victim was identified as Merlyn Villamar, of legal age.
The victim’s body was found without undergarments in a canal in La Carlota where investigators also found stones with blood stains believed to be used in killing the victim.
Initial investigation showed that the victim was last seen alive last Saturday night when she attended a drinking session with her friends and siblings.
The report said the victim had asked her drinking mates to allow her to go home first because she has something to do.
However, the victim did not reach their home until she was found dead the next day.
