ANC reports via Yahoo! News Philippines that her body was discovered inside a sack after the parents received a text message disclosing the location.

The teenager reportedly sustained stab wounds in the neck.

Police inspector Gilbert Perla, deputy chief of Noveleta Police Station, told DZMM reporter Dennis Datu that an investigation is being conducted to find out if the deaths of Aguirre, her friend, and that of Augusto Lising Jr. are connected.

Authorities found Aguirre's body near the house of Lising, the report said.
