UST graduate found dead in Cavite

A graduate of the University of Sto. Tomas (UST) was found dead on Wednesday morning in Bacoor town in Cavite, police said Thursday.

Cyrish Magalang, an alumna of the UST College of Tourism and Hospitality Management, was found dead at a grassy area in Barangay Gawaran at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, SPO2 Willy Arecayos said in a phone interview.

Authorities are still investigating the motive behind the incident, he added.

A report from GMA News’ Jay Sabale on GMA News TV’s “Kape at Balita” meanwhile said that Magalang sustained 49 stab wounds, based on information obtained from the funeral parlor where the victim was brought.

A statement from the UST Central Student Council circulating on social media sites meanwhile appealed for prayer for Magalang. –Andreo C. Calonzo/KG, GMA News
