Maria Moynihan – daughter of 3rd Lord Moynihan – was found on street with five gunshot wounds.
The daughter of a late British peer has been shot dead in the Philippines in what appears to be a vigilante-style gang hit in the country’s bloody crackdown on drugs.
Maria Aurora Moynihan (45) was left in the street in the capital Manila on 10 September police said.
Her attackers propped up a cardboard sign against her body which said: “Drug pusher to the celebrities.”
Moynihan was the daughter of the 3rd Lord Moynihan – a British peer who fled to the Philippines in the late 1960s following fraud allegations.
He ran several brothels and was allegedly active in drugs trafficking until 1991 – when he died of a stroke.
A dual British-Filipino citizen – Maria Moynihan was also accused of involvement in the narcotics business.
She had been on bail following charges of possession of illegal drugs in 2013.
