Couple, 2 kids stabbed dead in Cainta

MANILA, Philippines?Residents of Barangay (village) San Andres in Cainta, Rizal, were roused from sleep on Sunday night when they heard screams and pleas for help coming from one of their neighbors, the Azibar family.

However, they refused to intervene because they thought it was just a family dispute.

At around 5 a.m. on Monday, unable to contain her curiosity any longer, a resident who was identified as Lyn made her way to the Azibars? house where she saw blood flowing from underneath the front door.

When she peeked through the window, she saw the bloodied bodies of the victims?Elizabeth, 40; her husband Amado, 45; and the couple?s children Pretchie, 10, and Amado, 14.

Their bodies bore numerous stab wounds. Investigators said the kitchen knife that had been used to kill Pretchie was still stuck in her neck.

Senior Inspector Rodolfo Dabalos, Cainta deputy police chief, said they were looking for the couple?s nephew, Fortunato Azibar Jr., also known as Junjun, who was considered the prime suspect in the killings.

Lyn said she and other residents heard shouts and cries for help coming from the Azibars? house at around 11 p.m. on Sunday.

According to her, she heard Elizabeth say, ?Tama na, Jun (Stop it),? as her daughter screamed, ?Tulungan ninyo kami (Help us).?

Lyn said the commotion went on for about 15 minutes followed by silence.

?In our place, it?s an ordinary thing for a couple to shout at each other and fight. We don?t intervene in these cases,? she explained in Filipino.

Dabalos said the motive for the killings was still under investigation although they believe that it may have been caused by a row between Junjun and the family.

Senior Superintendent Emmanuel Bautista, Cainta police chief, said that Mayor Mon Ilagan had offered a P100,000 reward for any information that would lead to Junjun?s arrest.
