The three men were the last persons seen with Grade 9 student Christine Silawan before she was found dead by passers-by on Monday morning, said Police Colonel Lemuel Obon, Lapu-Lapu City police director.

“We have witnesses who said three men were seen with the victim. We are now tracing their whereabouts,” he said.

Silawan, a resident of Sirio Soong I in Barangay Mactan, Lapu-Lapu, failed to come home on Sunday after she asked her mother’s permission to go to church.

He said that they are leaning on rape as the motive of the killing.

Obon said the victim was a collector during Sunday Masses.

The worried mother reported to the police that her daughter failed to come home on Sunday.
“Kini wala ni gibuhat sa tarong nga tawo. Most likely, drug addicts gyod ni sila kay brutal kaayo nga pagkapatay,” Obon told Cebu Daily News Digital on a phone interview. 
[Translation: "This wasn't done by a person who was in their right mind. Most likely, drug addicts who did this based on the brutality of her death"]

On Monday morning, the police received a report about the body of a young woman dumped on a vacant lot in Bangkal.

The police then informed the girl’s mother who identified her through the shirt that she wore.

The girl’s face was skinned to the bones, exposing her skull and was naked from the waist down.

Obon said it was possible that the girl was raped but the police had yet to get official findings from the medico-legal officer.

It was also possible that the perpetrators were under the influence of illegal drugs because of the brutality of the crime.

Obon said that the LLCPO needs the help of the community to find the suspects.
“Dapat kita tanan maglagot ani. Dapat kita tanan magtinabangay og pangita aning mga kriminal,” said Obon. (With a report from Paul Lauro) /bmjo

  1. Death penalty no more no less. RIP in peace beautiful girl.

  2. Gawin rin sa kanila kung ano ginawa nila paano? hubaran sa plaza, balatan din lagyan ng suka, tuyo, asin, at sili tapos ang mga titi lagyan ng asukal lagyan ng langgam. It just fair and just meaning golden rule do not do to others... alam na nyo kasunod kung paano nila pinahirapan ang pobreng bata, fair lang ganoon din gawin sa kanila, dahil kung patayin mo agad ito at di nila naramdaman ang paghihirap sa bata unfair...
