A 22-year-old suspect in the rape-slay of a 70-year-old woman in Escalante City, Negros Occidental, who surrendered Saturday, claimed that he had mistaken the victim for a “witch”, Chief Insp. Santiago Rapiz said yesterday.

Suspect Rodel Lamis, alias Pandak, admitted having killed Lily Santillan, but denied molesting her, Rapiz, who is the Escalante police chief, added.

Santillan, who had one blind eye and was living alone, was found dead and naked by her grandson, Mario Mahinay, in her makeshift hut in Sitio Camayo-ong, Brgy. Dian-ay, Escalante City, Thursday.moremoremore
