Just when you thought the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) would finally be getting some good press, Interaksyon.com reports that security guard Maria Teresa Garbo found the body of a woman stuffed in a suitcase left in the parking lot of the airport’s Terminal 2 (Car Park 1, South Control Point) at around 7:50 a.m. today, Wednesday, January 11. She then alerted Manuel Pintado, deputy chief of the 1st Police Center for Aviation Security, about her gruesome discovery.
Interaksyon.com went on to quote Vicente Guerzon, Airport General Manager for Security and Emergency Services, who described the victim as "[around] 18 years old, about five feet tall, wearing a sleeveless light blue blouse, and tight black jeans." The victim’s body "was jammed tightly in a fetal position into the brown suitcase that measured only 36 inches long, 18 inches wide and about 10 inches deep." Guerzon added that "a name tag was attached to the suitcase, but added this was not necessarily the identity of the victim."
Interaksyon.com noted that the Pasay police's Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) "estimated that the victim had been dead since 5 a.m." The SOCO also pointed out that "there was no sign of blood and the body did not smell when the suitcase was opened, indicating the woman had been killed just a few hours before she was found."
Interaksyon.com observed: "Three cars-black, red and yellow-were parked around the suitcase. Investigators found bloodstains on the bumper of the yellow car, which was parked facing the suitcase."
When asked how the body could have been dumped in the tightly-guarded airport, Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) general manager Jose Honrado said, "The guards at the airport can open the car trunks but they are not allowed to open the pieces of luggage." Honrado also disclosed that "the airport's closed-circuit television does not cover the parking lot."
The investigation is still ongoing.
