Cops eye land dispute behind slay of 2 senior women in QC
MANILA, Philippines — Police investigators are looking at the angle that a land dispute may have triggered the fatal shooting of a mother and her daughter, who are both senior citizens, in Quezon City.
In an interview with INQUIRER.net, an official of the Quezon City police said the dispute happened after the victims had sold their land in Samar for over P300 million.
“Initially, kakabenta ng lupa over P300 milyon sa Samar. Nagbenta [sila] ng lupa tapos nagkagulo,” police official said.

Investigators, however, have yet to identify any suspects or persons of interest behind the shooting.
Last Friday night, victims Emilia Rumor, 93, and Brenda Rumor, 62, were shot by gunmen as they were parking their car in front of their house. Emilia died on the spot while Brenda later died at a hospital.
