Nurhaya Jaari y Arkasan, 17, who was occupying another  unit at Sam Condo, told police investigators she heard something fell inside her comfort room.

When she verified, she saw a backpack on the floor and saw a woman leaving the condo.

The in incident was reported to the barangay office and was responded by officials led by Miranda.
