Girl’s body found in Cavite beheaded
A decapitated body belonging to a 16 year old girl was discovered in Magallanes, Cavite, police said Wednesday.
Police said the victim is Maryjane dela Vega who could have also been raped by her attacker since her underwear was nowhere to be found when her body was discovered on Tuesday morning.
Investigators said that Dela Vega was with 2 girls in Sitio Pintong Gubat, Barangay Urdaneta, around 8 p.m. on Monday when a man armed with a bolo snatched the victim.
As the suspect’s face came into view while using their cellphones’ lights, the victim’s companions ran and sought help from barangay officials.
Responding barangay officials were unable to rescue the girl from her abductor.
The girl’s body was found Tuesday morning in a sugar plantation in the barangay.
Police said that manhunt operations have been launched against the suspect identified as Cesar Catipon, who has been involved in another murder case.
