8-year-old boy kidnapped in Virac

VIRAC, Catanduanes—Members of the Virac police are still searching for an 8-year-old boy who was kidnapped yesterday in this town.

In an interview by BICOL STANDARD, Police Senior Inspector Connie de Leon said that Sear Andrie Agripa, a pupil of Virac Pilot Elementary School, was picked up by suspect Cecilio Paredes from school yesterday afternoon.


UPDATE: Suspect in Virac child slay case speaks 

The police said that Paredes had long been a friend of the victim’s family, which is possibly why the victim willingly boarded a white van with the suspect.

Vicenter Agripa, 46 years old, a resident of Barangay Gogon Sirangan, and the father of the victim, alerted the police at around 7:45 last night when his son did not return home.

The police immediately launched a hot pursuit operation following Agripa’s report. This led to the arrest of suspect Paredes this morning.

Paredes confessed that he and several companions took the boy to a nearby lodging house.

He accompanied the police to the lodging house where, according to him, he left the boy and his companions.

The police found neither the boy nor the suspect’s companions in the building. However, they did find the victim’s belongings, including his school bag, which the police described as “very muddy.”

Meanwhile, the investigators discovered that Paredes is under a lot of debt which could have pushed him to kidnap the child and ask for ransom money.

Paredes is now detained at the local police station, where he continues to be interrogated.

As of press time, he has not revealed the identities of his companions. He has also sought the help of a lawyer to defend him.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
