MANILA, Philippines -- A woman was found dead in a ravine along Kennon Road in Tuba, Benguet on Wednesday morning, police said.

The body of the still unidentified woman was found at around 7 a.m. in Sitio Bridal, Barangay Twin Peaks by a certain John Wakat, who immediately alerted local police.

"Naglalakad kasi ako tapos bigla akong may mabahong naamoy. Nung tinignan ko, nakita ko 'yung paa ng tao," Wakat said.

Authorities said blood was seen on the victim's head. Her feet were also tied.

Police said it is possible that the victim had been dead for five days already.
