How sad! A 23-year-old beauty queen, Mary Christine Balagtas, was shot dead after answering the door to two men who gave her chocolates and flowers.
The suspects shot her in the head with a single bullet at her home.
Police said the men fled on a motorbike following the attack. The young lady was rushed to hospital but died in the ambulance before she got there.
“We are following several leads including a man who had a romantic relationship with the victim,” said Philippines Police Superintendent.
“We found an empty shell from a.45 calibre pistol at the scene and believe two men had fled on a motorcycle. Witnesses said that two men had been seen in the neighbourhood before the shooting.”
Christine was killed at her home in Bulacan, the Philippines, on Wednesday morning. RIP!
