Pediatrician found dead

A pediatrician was found dead at her rented apartment at Sola Street, Brgy. 2 in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental, at about 1 p.m. Monday.

Police Supt. Salvador Dagoon, officer-in-charge of the Kabankalan Police, yesterday identified the body as that of Mary Roselyn Gomez, 33, of Victorias City in Negros Occidental.

The body of Gomez, that was already in an advanced state of decomposition, was discovered by her secretary, Ester Chua, 39, Dagoon said.

He said there was no foul play in the incident, as they did not see any evidences of forcible entry in the place, and there were no signs of struggle visible on the body.

None of her valuables were missing, the police also said.

Her sister, whose name was not disclosed, said the victim allegedly had asthma, a common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways, Dagoon said.

He said the family of Gomez are already convinced about the cause of her death, and her remains were brought to a funeral parlor in Bacolod City for cremation.*SGG
