ILOILO City – A 22-year-old assistant manager of a fast food chain was found dead in her room yesterday in Barangay Purok 4, Pavia, Iloilo.
Citing Aira Jane Fabiaña’s head injury, Police Major Fernand Limbungan, Pavia police chief, said the young woman was likely hit with a hard object.
An autopsy would also determine if she was raped, added Limbungan.
A brother discovered Fabiaña dead around 4:45 a.m.
The Fabiañas live on the second floor of their two-storey house. They were renting out the first floor to boarders.
According to Limbungan, the Police Regional Office 6 had been requested to conduct the autopsy.
“Her lower garments were found next to her body,” he said.
There were no signs of forcible entry in the house or Fabiaña’s room, according to Limbungan.
Probers were not discounting the possibility that Fabiaña may have known her attacker.
“She may have let her in,” said Limbungan.
He placed the crime to have been carried out midnight or early morning yesterday.
Neighbors claimed hearing Fabiaña say, “Indi ‘ko ya.”/PN
