A 31-year-old woman was brutally killed and burned in her farmland by unidentified suspects the other day in Camarines Norte.

The victim was identified as Rodelyn Rafon Dominguez, 31, married, of Purok 6, Bgy. Pambuhan, Mercedes town.
    
Reports said the victim was found at around 7 a.m.by a farmer, identified as Igmidio Consuelo Custodio, in her farm located at Purok 1, Bgy. Tarum, Mercedes town.
    
Initial investigation showed that Custodio was cutting grasses in his farm when he smelled a stinky odor.  When he searched where the odor came from, he saw the burned body of a woman with no underwear.
    
Custodio immediately reported the incident to Barangay Captain Ronnel Gallego, who sought the help of local police to retrieve the body.
    
The body, which was already in state of decomposition, was positively identified by her husband Albert Dominguez.
