A 9-year-old girl was found murdered allegedly by her stepfather in Del Gallego, Camarines Sur, Saturday.
The victim’s mother and the stepfather argued before the child went missing Wednesday, according to police. The suspect also threatened his partner that she would regret if she will not return home within half an hour.
The stepfather was the last person seen with the child before she disappeared, investigators added.
Three days later, hunters in the outlying part of Barangay Mansalaya found the child’s body. She was already in the stage of decomposition, so the medico-legal ordered to burry the victim immediately.
It is still unclear whether the child was raped and how the child was killed.
A witness surfaced and said he saw the child’s stepfather gathering bamboo sticks in the area where the victim was found.
Residents beat the suspect whose hands and feet are tied when arrested by the authorities. He was already charged with murder.
PNP prepares for resumption of public transportation
Officials of the National Capital Regional Police Office met yesterday afternoon with leaders of various transportation sectors to make preparations for the resumption of the public transportation after ECQ.
The meeting was held at the Multi-Purpose Hall of the Manila Police District (MPD) in Ermita, Manila, where there was unity in ensuring the safety and security of passengers while fighting the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the country.
On the NCRPO’s side, Director PMGen Debold Sinas said they would deploy 100 personnel to Light Rail Transit and Metro Rail Transit to assist train administrators in implementing ‘physical distancing’ protocols.
Local police will also set up PNP desks in bus and jeepney terminals to assist passengers and terminal administrations.
Sinas is now asking for public cooperation, especially to the passengers in adhering to their protocols to prevent the country from experiencing more coronavirus cases.
Even though President Rodrigo Duterte has not decided yet on whether to declare general community quarantine (GCQ) in Metro Manila, Sinas said police and the public need to prepare to implement the so-called “new normal effectively.”
