A closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera caught the murder of a pharmacy saleslady in Escalante City, Negros Occidental Thursday last week.
The footage showed a man climbing over the pharmacy counter and then stabbing victim Ressel Bacan in the chest.
Bacan was able to run to the back portion of the pharmacy to escape her assailant. She later died from the stab wound.
The victim was accompanied by a fellow saleslady when the crime occurred. She was seen lying at the bench located at the back portion of the pharmacy when Bacan was stabbed.
Police have launched an investigation to determine the identity of the suspect, whose face was not seen clearly in the CCTV footage. They suspect that the victim knew the assailant. – Umagang Kay Ganda, June 18 2012
