The couple’s body was found decomposing inside their house in Barangay Cabayugan in Malinao town, Tuesday morning.
The couple was identified as George Cabawatan, 64, and Lucille Cabawatan, 56.
During the Malinao Police investigation, they were reported to have a foul odor coming from the victims’ house. It was learned that it had been several days since the residents had seen the couple outside.
It was also learned that the couple has no other housemate because their only child lives in Metro Manila.
The authorities asked Lucille’s sister, who lived in another town, for help to open and enter the house.
When the authorities and Lucille’s sister entered the house, they discovered the decomposed and bloody body of the couple.
Bloodstains were found on the kitchen wall of the victims’ house. Authorities also found footprints.
Meanwhile, wounds were found on the heads and bodies of the victims and there were missing items inside the victims’ houses according to the Scene of the Crime Operation (SOCO) investigation.
Neighbors last saw Lucille alive on April 30, 2021, when she attended a birthday party in their area.
