The female driver Jang Lucero who was found dead inside her car in Calamba, Laguna, sustained more than 50 stab wounds.
In John Consulta’s report on GMA News “24 Oras” on Tuesday, police said 52 of the 34-year-old Jang Lucero’s stab wounds were mostly in the chest area.
There was also an indication that the suspect stabbed Lucero from the back of her car. The victim also sustained defense wounds, which indicated she fought.
When asked if there could be more than one culprit, Police Lieutenant Colonel Gene Licud, Calamba Police Chief, said it was “possible.”
Before the body of Jang Lucero was found on the bypass road in Laguna, the victim first transported his girlfriend to Bae, Laguna, on the night of June 28.
She then transported three passengers, who booked her on Facebook, to Manila until her body was found.
Authorities are studying various possible motives for the crime, including a love triangle, robbery, and revenge.
Brigadier General Vicente Danao Jr., Regional Director, PRO-4A, warned people not to transport people who booked using social media because of the danger it brought.
“It could be a fake account lalo na yung ganun na ginagamit lang ang messenger, yung Facebook,” he said.
Calamba police chief Police Lieutenant Colonel Gene Licud earlier said the crime could be premeditated.
“Kasama’ yan sa ating mga assumptions, na ito ay pinagplanuhan dahil sa pagsasagawa naman ng isang krimen ay aside from the crime of passion, pinagpaplanuhan. Hindi lang ito ‘yung biglang outburst,” said Licud.
(That is also included in our assumptions, that this crime is premeditated. That aside from the crime of passion, this was planned. It’s not just the sudden outburst.)
