CEBU CITY, Philippines—An 83-year-old pension house owner was found murdered in Bacolod City early Monday morning.

The body of Ma. Karmen Galo, owner of Karmen Pension House located at Lopez Jaena Street in Bacolod, sustained multiple stab wounds.  Her neck was slashed.

Galo was found by her son, Antonio, and an employee inside the bathroom of her own room in the establishment, said Chief Inspector Noel Polines, police station 6 chief.

Pension house employee Jonalyn Diaz, who also found Galo, told the police that prior to the discovery of the body, they had four guests, two men and two women, who checked in at 5 a.m. Sunday.

Police said that an hour after checking in, two of the guests—a male and female—checked out. One hour later, the remaining female guest also checked out leaving a lone male guest.

Diaz told investigators she heard the victim and one of the male guests in a heated argument because he wanted all four of them to occupy one room.

At 2 a.m. on Monday, the last male guest checked out, after which Antonio and Diaz found the victim’s body.
