Mandaue couple came from RTW shop’s clearance sale before Sunday night killing
CEBU CITY, Philippines – Friends and customers of the couple that was killed in Mandaue City late on Sunday night have expressed anger and sadness on their brutal killing.
They believe that the couple was robbed because they had a monthly clearance sale of the ready to wear shop that they own, earlier that day.
“Nag sale man ni sila gabie maong gi tulis d i,” Kheithmaykingschoi Rubio Ubas said.
Fraldine Kate Ramayla Canes, 24, and her husband, Michael Canes, 27, owns a RTW shop called Micate Shoppe Online that is located at the second floor of a mall in Barangay Ibabao, Mandaue City.
Fraldine announced on her Facebook page on April 11, Thursday, that they were having their monthly clearance sale on Sunday, April 14.
Initial police investigation showed that the couple and their eight-year-old daughter came from the North Bus Terminal in Barangay Subangdaku to send some supplies to Bantayan Island.
CCTV footage obtained by the Mandaue City Police Office (MCPO) Command Center show that the Canes family was on board a motorcycle travelling home to Barangay Umapad when attacked by the still unidentified suspects past 11 p.m. on Sunday.
The CCTV footage showed that Michael stopped at the intersection of S. B. Cabahug and A.C. Cortes Avenue in respect of the red light.
A motorcycle tandem then stopped on Michael’s left side. The backrider pulled a handgun and fired at Michael which caused him and his motorcycle to fall to the other side of the road. Fraldine and their daughter also fell on the ground.
The backrider then moved to Michael’s right side and started to fire shots at Fraldine before taking what appeared to be her handbag before he again boarded the waiting motorcycle. Their daughter was unharmed.
The tandem fled towards the northern part of the city.
Shortly after news of their death came out, friends and costumers started to flood Fraldine’s FB page with their expression of condolences.
“Grabeh nmn gumawa nan r.i.p mam / sir mabait pa nmn kausap sila..,” said GopiLa’s O’shop.
