THE Philippine National Police (PNP) vowed that justice will be served for a 15-year-old rape-slay victim whose body was found in Batangas recently.

PNP Chief, Police General Guillermo Eleazar has ordered the Laurel Municipal Police Station (MPS) investigators to make sure they have an airtight case against the alleged perpetrator or perpetrators of the rape-slay.

Reports reaching the PNP Chief’s office said the body of the victim was found in a forested area in Barangay Sta. Maria on Monday (November 8) evening. The victim went to her classmate’s house on Monday morning so they could answer their modules together, but had not returned home by nightfall, causing her family to worry and search for her.

The teenager was found naked, her face covered with her own clothes and her module beside her body. The Laurel MPS found initial indications that she was raped and strangled to death.

A witness told local police that the teenager was last seen in the company of a barangay tanod, who had since been arrested and taken into police custody on Tuesday, November 9. He denied any involvement in the crime.

PGen Eleazar, meanwhile, expressed his condolences to the victim’s family as he vowed that the PNP will give justice to her death.

As a parent myself, I know the family’s feeling of pain and grief. Our sincere condolences to the victim’s family, who could have had a better future waiting for her. The PNP assures that it will have an airtight case to make sure that the perpetrator or perpetrators will answer to the law for committing this heinous crime,” PGen Eleazar said.

The Chief PNP appealed to the public for those who may have information on the incident to come forward and help authorities give justice to the teenager.
