Teener, child raped, killed

The body of a teenager,  who was molested brutally killed on Feb. 14, was found Wednesday  in Sitio Panglukasan, Brgy. Cabatangan, Talisay City, in an advanced state of decomposition.

In Sipalay City, an 8-year-old also suffered a similar fate, with her uncle as the alleged suspect, police said.

Inspector Pabiolo Ortiz, Talisay deputy police chief, yesterday said the victim, identified as Ma. Rose Matriano,17, who had been reported missing for almost two days by her parents. Her body was found, from information provided by Lemuel Mirambel, one the suspects who was  invited by the police for questioning, Ortiz said.

The half-naked victim, who had been stripped of her underwear, succumbed to hack wounds in the head and left shoulder, that had caused her death, Ortiz said.

Ortiz also said that based on the autopsy reports of Dr. Gladys Joy Guanzon, Talisay City Health Officer, the victim also had a fractured skull and had been molested.

Talisay police investigations show that the victim, was fetched by her suitor, Mirambel, and Lorejhon Domingo, 22, from the residence of her grandfather, to buy whisky, saying they had  sought permission from her father.

Mirambel, 18, according to police investigations, and the victim engaged in sexual acts, when Domingo, who was wearing only his  underwear and armed with a bolo, arrived, and pushed him away.

Ortiz said Mirambel claimed it was Domingo who hacked the victim, although he did not witness how she died it because he fled in fear. He however,  did not report the incident to the family of the victim.

Domingo could not be found as of press time yesterday, Ortiz said. He said rape with homicide charges will be filed against the detained Mirambel and Domingo.

In Sipalay City,  the police  filed rape with homicide charges against  a certain Anthony Tamayo before the City Prosecutor’s Office of Sipalay, after he was linked to the molestation and killing  of his niece on Feb. 10.

Inspector John Ganzon, Sipalay deputy police chief, in an interview with Aksyon Radyo, said the body of the victim was found in Brgy. Nauhang, Sipalay City, two days after she was reported  missing by her parents.

Ganzon said there were hematomas and contusions in  different parts of  her   body, believed  caused by a hard object.

Tamayo is now detained at the Sipalay City Police Station jail.*GPB
