Police arrest teenager for raping, killing 5-year-old girl

The Kidapawan City police have arrested a 15-year-old boy for allegedly raping and then killing a five-year-old girl who went missing on Wednesday afternoon.

The Kidapawan City police have arrested a 15-year-old boy for allegedly raping and then killing a five-year-old girl who went missing on Wednesday afternoon.

 

John Unson of the Philippine Star reports the "victim was found dead by neighbors on a grassy lot in Barangay Manongol in Kidapawan City late Wednesday" after the community initiated a search of the area.

 

Neighbors tagged the 15-year-old suspect who has "confessed to killing the child, but denied molesting her." Government physicians have yet to determine whether the victim was molested, the report said.

 

"Because he is a minor, we cannot reveal his name. We're now doing the documentation of the crime with the help of the Department of Social Welfare and Development," Police Superitendent Joseph Semillano, city police chief, says in the report.

 

According to the report, the victim, the daughter of preachers, was supposed to be crowned the third runner-up of her school’s Miss Valentine’s Children’s pageant on Thursday afternoon.
