A mother and child were murdered in their home along C.P. Garcia Avenue yesterday. The two, Edna Brizuela, 41 and her son Jadi Magsakay, 7 were found dead due to multiple stab wounds, authorities say.
Lito “Jugno” Arsenia, Brizuela’s live-in partner is tagged as the primary suspect. The 39-year-old man and Brizuela reportedly had a fight over Arsenia’s excessive drinking a few days before the murder.
Brizuela’s and Magsakay’s neighbors say they saw Jugno leave the C.P. Garcia home at noon on October 24, about 24 hours before the bodies of the victims were found.
Police told the media that a knife was found at the crime scene. Arsenio could not be found in the vicinity though when police initially looked for him yesterday to shed light to the incident.
A manhunt has already been launched by the Crime Investigation and Detection Unit of the Quezon City Police District.
