65-year-old beheaded by neighbor in Agusan del Sur

A 65-year-old was found beheaded inside her shop in Bayugan City, Agusan del Sur.

According to a report on "Saksi" by Claire Lacanilao of GMA Regional TV, her head was found 200 meters away from the scene of the crime.

The suspect, her neighbor Mario Fortun, was reportedly in the middle of drinking when he told his buddies that he would bring them a gift.

"Pumunta siya sa bahay ng victim, pumasok siya sa tindahan which is doon lang din ang bahay ng victim. May dala-dala siyang bolo, tinaga at yun na," Bayugan City chief of police Police Lieutenant Colonel Shalon Faye Cornelio said.

The suspect allegedly presented the head to his drinking companions.

Initial investigations showed the crime may have rooted from a disagreement between the two neighbors over flowers.

"Konting alitan lang dahil sa bulaklak ng victim na sagabal daw sa dinadaanan ng suspek. Nagalit si suspek kasi daw yung bulaklak po may mga tinik. In response naman sa galit ng suspek kay victim, sinabihan daw si suspek na magnanakaw," Cornelio said. —Jiselle Anne C. Casucian/NB, GMA Integrated News
