A 29-year-old beauty specialist was found dead inside an abandoned car in Las Piñas City on Tuesday, Jan. 17.

Col. Jaime Santos, city police chief, said the victim, identified as Jennifer Mendoza of Balagtas St., Tondo, Manila, was found lifeless around 9:30 a.m. in front of Villar Sipag Complex on C5 Extension Road in Barangay Zapote, Las Piñas City.

Santos said street sweepers Olivia Olimberio, 48, and Teresita Mejorada, 47, informed Villar Sipag security guard Gian Carlo, 32, about their discovery.

Carlo immediately called up the Zapote Police Sub-Station, informing them that an unconscious woman was found inside an abandoned colored gray Mazda car with plate number ATA-9782.

Santos said responding Zapote Sub-Station personnel found Mendoza inside the car and blood stains on the road, prompting them to call for an investigator from the Station Investigation Detective and Management Section (SIDMS).

He said during investigation, the victim was found seated at a passenger seat and was already dead.

Crime scene investigators removed the body from the car and brought it to the PNP Forensic Unit through Royalty Funeral Services for autopsy.

Santos said the family of the victim was already notified of Mendoza’s death.

He also said that during coordination with the Land Transportation Office (LTO), it was found out that the abandoned car was registered to a certain Julius Pascual Guillermo of Kalamansi St., Maligaya, Caloocan City.

The station commander of Caloocan Police Sub-Station 10 was already informed of the incident and a team proceeded to the address of Guillermo.
