A 21-YEAR-OLD senior student of the De La Salle College Lipa on Friday was found brutally killed in her dormitory room in Lipa City, Batangas.

The body of Fidex Therese Maranan, a 4th year college student at the De La Salle Lipa, was discovered by her relative, Romulo Maranan, inside her room in a dormitory in Lourdes Street, Miracle Heights Subdivision in Antipolo del Norte at 3:30 p.m. on Friday.

It  was suspected   that the victim was sexually abused by her attacker.  

Batangas Police Provincial Office director Col. Edwin Quilates said that Maranan was covered with blanket and lying on the floor when found by her relative.
