PUBLIC OUTRAGE, OUTPOURING OF SUPPORT FOR CHRISTINE LEE SILAWAN
In an unprecedented public support, most of whom wanted their identities not to be disclosed, following the skinning to death of 16-year-old Christine Lee Silawan, the reward money for information that may lead to the arrest of the one or those behind the demonic act is now Php2M.
This development came as police authorities said with certainty that the suspects are still in Cebu and continue to keep away from being identified due to the use of technology.
The National Bureau of Investigation-7 and the Commission on Human Rights are coordinating closely with the Lapu-Lapu City police in the arrest of the perpetrators.
The victim, Christine Lee Silawan, a church tithe server, was found dead at a vacant lot in barangay Bangkal, Lapu-Lapu City early dawn on March 11. Her lifeless body had 26 stab wounds, half of her face was peeled off and her esophagus ripped off.
Medico legal officer Benjamin Lara who conducted the autopsy on the victim said Christine’s lungs and liver were already grazed due to stabbing. The killers also cut the victim’s tongue. Multiple bounty were already offered by different organizations and individuals regarding the suspect.
