On June 20, 2017, 19-year-old call center agent Anna Cecilia Galicia, who happened to be five months pregnant, was found bleeding and unconscious inside a unit at Studio One in Northgate Cyberzone, Alabang, Muntinlupa City. Reports say the building security guard had gone to the unit to ask if anything was wrong, as Anna Cecilia's relatives were worried about her.
Anna Cecilia was rushed to the hospital. Unfortunately, it was too late to save her life and that of her baby.
Based on the initial findings of the police, Anna Cecilia was most likely badly beaten up by her partner Carl David Asehan, also 19, who lives with her. The latter fled from the apartment and is still on the loose.
GMA News reports that Anna Cecilia managed to call her brother right after she was beaten up by Carl David. Her brother, Ryan Galicia, recalls that she told him, "Kuya, masakit yung katawan ko. Masakit yung likod ko. Nahihirapan akong huminga (Kuya, my body hurts. My back hurts. I'm having a hard time breathing)."
