POLICE: Robbery not a motive in woman’s fatal stabbing

THE ECOLAND Police Station dismissed the allegation that the fatal stabbing of a woman along Quimpo Boulevard last Sunday, April 1, was a result of a robbery gone wrong. 

In an interview on Tuesday morning, Major Noel Villahermosa, Ecoland Police Station chief, confirmed that investigators have identified a person of interest but withheld details to avoid jeopardizing the investigation.

“We’ve made significant progress in the investigation into the stabbing of Cinderela Rosales last Sunday. We have identified a person of interest and are actively pursuing leads. To protect the integrity of the investigation, I cannot disclose specific details at this time,” he said.

“However, I can confirm that the victim was an online seller and investigators are looking into the possibility of a prior altercation that may be connected to the crime,” Villahermosa said.

The assigned investigators have fanned out to gather the CCTV recordings and potential witnesses that could pin down the perpetrators.

The investigation revealed Rosales had a previous argument with someone a few months ago. Her husband informed investigators that Rosales had received threats from an unknown individual.

Villahermosa emphasized that they are “committed to apprehending the suspect. The investigation will continue until an arrest is made and a case is filed.”

He clarified that no belongings were stolen from the victim, further supporting the dismissal of a robbery motive.
