The balikbayan sister of actress Coleen Garcia-Crawford’s stepmom was stabbed to death by their former employee in Antipolo City early morning of Saturday.
In a Facebook post, Garcia identified the suspect as Art Tondo, who used to work with her father as a construction worker until he was fired due to his alleged drug use.
The victim was identified as Canice Seming just came home to spend the Christmas holidays in the Philippines. She was staying at the house of Garcia’s parents when Tondo chanced upon her as he was looking for his live-in partner who was a nanny in the house.
Seming sustained 15 stab wounds when she tried to intervene with Tondo and his partner.
“Murderer! Mamamatay-tao!” Garcia said as she shared two photos of the suspect.
“Two nights ago, he (Tondo) made his way into my dad’s house and stabbed my stepmom’s sister, Canice, to death. She was found to have over 15 stab wounds. He has a record of drug abuse, and is suspected to have been under the influence that night,” she further said
According to Garcia, Tondo used to work as her father’s carpenter and also used to work on the Crawfords’ house, until his drug use was discovered and the elder Garcia decided to let him go.
Garcia said Tondo’s former live-in partner continued to work as a nanny to her little sister and step brother.
“She left him and blocked him because apparently he’d been constantly threatening her, even saying he plans to kill her seven children. He never threatened my family prior to what happened. Canice had just arrived in my dad’s house, and he showed up looking for his partner, who was at our house at that time with my family,” she said.
Garcia said the murder of her stepmom’s sister is “completely devastating.”
“It’s difficult to find the words, but this man needs to be caught because he still remains to be a threat.
The actress said three children, who she did not identify, would have also been at that house the same night.
“I feel sick and weak every time I think about the children, who were supposed to be there that same night,” Garcia said. “They were on the way home from our house when it happened, and the three children were in the car when the body was found. Had their original plans been followed, the children would have been there at that same time,” she added.
