Suspect charged in rape slay of 11-year-old Masbate kid

BALUD, Masbate—The suspect in the rape slay of an 11-year-old grade 4 student here is now facing a case for Rape with Homicide in relation to Republic Act 7610, otherwise known as the “Special Protection of Children Against Abuse, Exploitation and Discrimination Act.”

Identified as 21-year-old Alvin Velarde y Magallanes, a fisherman from Barangay Guinbanuahan, this town, the suspect is allegedly responsible for the rape and murder of Nene (not her real name) whose body was found Friday by another fisherman.

Velarded was arrested by Chief Inspector Ariel Neri Acop of the Balud Municipal Police Station.

Not the first

The investigation revealed that it was likely not the first time that Nene was raped by the suspect.

They claim to have received a report that the victim was raped by the suspect at her residence on an unspecified time and date.

This time, however, Nene was strangled with a belt after the sexual assault, causing her immediate death, before being abandoned at a grassy portion of Barangay Guinbanuahan.

More suspects?

Suspect Velarde, however, maintained that that two other persons are involved in the incident.

During the inquest proceedings, he executed an extra-judicial confession implicating Nobe Mesa and Marlou Fuentes who are also also residents of the same place.

The confession was done in the presence of Atty. Lilian delos Santos of the Masbate City Public Attorney’s Office.

Separate cases will be filed against the two other suspects, according to the Balud police.

Meanwhile, Velarde’s case is now pending before the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office of Masbate City, docketed under NPS No. V-12-INQ-15K-01905.

End VAW

In a statement, Senior Inspector Malu Calubaquib assured the BICOL STANDARD that the police does not relent until victims like Nene are given justice.

This is especially because the case coincides with the Philippine National Police’s campaign this week to end Violence Against Women (VAW).

“With the help of the citizens, we put the perpetrators behind bars,” Calubaquib said.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
