MANILA, Philippines - Authorities discovered the decomposing body of a woman believed to be a victim of summary execution in Manila.

Senior Police Officer 2 Virgo Villareal said the unidentified victim could have been raped first before she was killed.

“Posibleng ginahasa itong nasabing biktima dahil wala nang saplot na pang-itaas at pang-ibaba ang biktima na halos di na makilala dahil bloated na ang bangkay nito," reported dzMM's correspondent Johnson Manabat.

The body was found placed inside a yellow sack and dumped in an alley along Dagonoy Street in Sta. Ana, Manila.

However, no one saw the body being dumped in the area.

Scene of the crime operatives believe that the victim may have been killed several days prior to the discovery her body.
