60-year-old woman shot dead in Ozamiz
OZAMIZ CITY – A 60-year old woman described as a ‘witch’ was killed by still unknown assailants in a rural village here, a police report said Thursday.
Esperanza Camos, a resident of Barangay Kinuman Sur, succumbed to four gunshot wounds in various parts of her body, according to a belated report at the local police station.
The incident happened around 4 p.m. Wednesday inside Camos’ house where four empty shells of caliber .45 handgun were recovered by authorities.
The victim’s neighbors said they heard shot fired on that day.
It was later discovered that Camos, whose house was located some 200 meters away from the village center, had been attacked and killed.
The police were then called in to document and make sense of the crime scene.
In the police blotter, investigators wrote about the slaying of a “mangkukulam” by unidentified suspects. CDG/rga
