Police Lieutenant Colonel Randy Caballes, Talisay City Police Station chief, said that the investigation on the death of Mary Ann Ruiz of Barangay Pooc this city was ongoing.

Caballes said that they were considering all possible angles in the investigation including the possibility of foul play as the cause of Ruiz death.

The Talisay police chief also said that based on the photos he had seen of the Ruiz’s body, there were bruises on her neck.

With this, police have requested the relatives to let Ruiz’s body undergo an autopsy to shed light on what could be the cause of her death.
