Teenager hammered to death

A teenager was hammered to death in her home in Cotabato City on Friday. Police said the 17-year-old victim was found dead by her father inside her bedroom.

ABS-CBN News reports that the hammer, which was used by the unidentified killer to crush the victim’s head, was found just outside her room. Hair strands were also found on the girl’s hand.

Such and other pieces of evidence were already sent to the police crime laboratory for analysis, the report said.

Investigators believe that the perpetrator entered the house through a window, but the parents reportedly said they did not know something violent was happening because no noise can be heard from the room.

Authorities reportedly said they already have a suspect but his name has been withheld pending investigation.
