But they were checking if Romhur’s death had any connection to the still unresolved killing of her niece, Catherine Romhur Johnson, who was shot last year while buying bread from a bakery.

Romhur was driving her gray Mitsubishi Strada pickup and was heading home to Narcisa Hills Subdivision in Barangay Rawis at around 4:45 p.m. when an unidentified gunman shot her in the face several times.

The vehicle kept moving for about 100 meters before it came to a stop.
