Lady found dead inside abandoned vehicle in Las Piñas City

Recently in the City of Las Piñas, a 29-year-old lady was found dead inside an abandoned vehicle in front of a particular complex along C5 Extension Road, Barangay Zapote, according to a Manila Bulletin news report. The vehicle was discovered by two street sweepers who informed the local security guard and called the attention of the local authorities. Subsequently, the Manila Bulletin reported that robbery-holdup could be the motive behind the death of the victim.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the initial Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

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.

The expanded road located along Pasong Baka connects to Barangay Talon Uno and Barangay Talon Singko within the city. It is expected to ease travel from Marcos Alvarez Avenue to Barangay Pilar. Take note, however, that in one of the pictures showing street signs leading to the 676-meter stretch of Zapote River Drive, there is a notable public instruction that motorcycles, bicycles and tricycles are not allowed.

Pay close attention to the details on the signs in this picture. (photo source – Villar SIPAG Facebook page)

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Las Piñas City resident, what is your reaction to this recent development? Have you been driving along the River Drive recently? Do you find travel along the River Drive helpful or more efficient when compared with traveling along the Alabang-Zapote Road?

7th Las Piñas Food Festival all set for April 29 via Facebook

Even as people and businesses are still struggling with the ongoing COVID-19 (China Virus) pandemic, nothing will stop the celebration of cooking and gardening in the city of Las Piñas as Villar SIPAG (Social Institute for Poverty Alleviation and Governance) formally announced that the 7th Las Piñas Food Festival will take place on April 29, 2021 (Thursday) at 10AM via Facebook.

With the theme of “Harvest of Our Garden Meals”, the 7th Las Piñas Food Festival will be composed of its standard competitions for cooking (with competitors representing the barangays) as well as urban gardening (with competing barangays that do have urban gardens of their own).

As Villar SIPAG’s announcement specifically mentions Facebook and does not mention any venue (physical location), it is understood that this event will be streamed live via the social network and most likely it won’t be a spectator nor a visitor-oriented event compared to the previous editions of the food festival. Very likely, the cooking contest will be held somewhere indoors where the contests, event organizers and camera operators can safely organize. We will find out very soon.

During my years as a journalist, I attended and covered the Las Piñas Food Festival a few times and each time it was held at the Villar SIPAG facility along C5 Extension Road. As there was no pandemic back then, visitors and customers were welcomed to watch the competitions and the award ceremonies on-site. Very notably, the food festival back then had a section where food vendors as well as stalls of ready-to-eat food were present and welcomed visitors to buy from them. There were also freshly cooked meals, desserts and beverages being sold to customers during those years.

The 7th Las Piñas Food Festival is presented by Senator Cynthia Villar and Congresswoman Camille Villar and supported by AllDay, AllHome, AllBank, First Metro, Island Gas, Mex, Tecnogas, Technik, Mushroomburger, Handelaar Corp., and Asia Brewery Inc.
