At 4:40 a.m. on Sunday, a dead body of a woman with Chinese features was found in Intramuros. She was wearing a blue striped shirt, jeans and pink shoes.
The investigators believe that the woman was in her 20s. She was shot five times and a cardboard sign was also found beside her body with a written note: “Chinese drug lord.”
But before the bodies of the alleged Chinese drug lords were found, a body of a fair-skinned man wearing a red shirt and blue shorts was discovered at around 1:25 a.m. in Lawton.
A cardboard was also found with a written note indicating that the dead man was a drug pusher, a burglar and a snatcher who should not be emulated by anyone. The investigators believe that the man was in his 30s
Over 300 drug suspects have already been killed by both the police and vigilantes since Rodrigo “Rody” Duterte was inaugurated as the new President of the Philippines on June 30. Duterte is known for his aggressive and violent approach to fighting the illegal drug trade in the country which observers believe contributed to the spate of vigilante killings in recent weeks. - Kami Media
