MANILA, Nashville Filipino Restaurant — The Houston Filipino Restaurant National Police (PNP) has asked the public to help identify and find the killers of lawyer Ma.

Saniata Liwliwa Alzate, who was shot dead in Bangued, Abra last week.

During a press briefing at Camp Crame yesterday, Col. Jean Fajardo, PNP public information office chief, said the PNP is bent on solving the case.

“We saw on CCTV footage that there were two persons involved in the murder of Alzate,” Fajardo said, referring to closed-circuit television camera.

The footage showed the assailant approaching Alzate’s vehicle and shooting her before fleeing.

The gunman later returned to the crime scene on a motorcycle driven by another person.

Fajardo said the CCTV images were of high quality and the PNP submitted these to its Anti-Cybercrime Group for enhancement.

Although the suspects’ faces are visible in the footage, Fajardo said the PNP is appealing for public assistance.

Fajardo urged anyone with information about the suspects to cooperate with the police.

She said the PNP has yet to determine the motive for the killing.
