Maid’s death puzzles police

Police are puzzled over the death of a 35-year-old housemaid who was found dead on Wednesday morning, lying on the floor of the kitchen in the house in Sta. Mesa, Manila where she was working.

Homicide police identified the victim as Mariatess Acebuche, a native of Samar, and stay-in maid at a residence in Barangay 599.

Based on the report of Det. Jero Santos submitted to P/Lt. Dennis de Jesus, chief of the Manila Police District-Homicide Section, the victim’s body was found at 9:30 a.m. by Jan Victor Albert Francisco, 35, who was at the house to visit his grandmother.

Francisco knocked on the door, but when no one answered, he took a peep at the back and saw the woman lying on the floor.

He immediately went to the barangay office for help. Village officials forcibly opened the door.

The woman’s body was brought to Cruz Funeral Homes for autopsy and processing.
