LIVE-IN partners, who were forcibly abducted by at least 10 unidentified masked men allegedly introducing themselves as policemen, were found dead with bullet wounds in their heads and bodies in separate places Tuesday night in Navotas City.

The bullet-riddled body of Jenny Royo, 45, fish vendor, of Market 3 Navotas Fish Port Complex, Bgy. North Bay Boulevard North (NBBN), was discovered at around 10:40 p.m. slumped bloodied under the bridge along Babanse St., Bgy. North Bay Boulevard South (NBBS).
     
Navotas police chief Senior Supt. Dante Novicio said four empty shells and a fired bullet for still unknown type of firearm were recovered beside the victim’s body while an undetermined amount of money and jewelry were found inside her bra.
     
Royo’s live-in partner Rogelio Gilbuena, 56, was found inside the Navotas Municipal Cemetery on Gov. Pascual St., Bgy. San Jose, at around 10:45 p.m. with bullet wounds in the head. Three empty shells for unknown caliber of firearm were recovered at the crime scene.
     
Victim’s relatives told police that earlier at around 8 p.m., unidentified armed men wearing bonnets and face masks forcibly barged inside their house and at gunpoint ordered them to lie facedown.
 
The suspects abducted the victims who were accused of involvement in illegal drug activities and told their relatives and children to follow them to a police station.
     
Victim’s daughter admitted that her mother was previously a drug user but has already stopped while her father had no vice and was working as fishing boat caretaker.
