Girl found dead in Los Baños

10:32 pm | Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

LAGUNA—a 14-year-old high school student was found dead, with marks indicating she could have also been raped, in Los Baños, Laguna, yesterday.

Supt. Dante Novicio, the Los Baños police chief, said in a phone interview that a resident found the victim’s body in a banana plantation in Barangay Batong Malake past 9 a.m.

Initial police reports said a pair of jogging pants the victim wore was tied around her neck, which may had been used to strangle her to death.

“Her underwear was also removed,” said Novicio, although autopsy results have yet to be completed to confirm if the victim was sexually abused.

Police identified the victim as a second year student of Batong Malake National High School. She used to sell sampaguita leis to earn extra money, Novicio said, quoting the victim’s neighbors.

Police requested that the identity of the victim be withheld. The victim’s family has been informed although they have yet to give a statement to police.

In October last year, a student from the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB), Given Grace Cebanico, was murdered and raped, prompting tighter security inside the university compound and in the surrounding villages of Batong Malake and San Antonio.

Cebanico was abducted by the suspects, a tricycle driver and a bank security guard who were later arrested, near her dormitory in Barangay Batong Malake, but her body was found in a remote portion of the UPLB campus in Barangay Putho-Tuntingin. Maricar Cinco, Inquirer Southern Luzon

Johannesburg – A teenager bit off a man’s tongue while he was raping her in Masoyi, near Hazyview, Mpumalanga police said on Monday.

The 17-year-old girl was held up by an armed man and his accomplice, and dragged into bushes on Saturday, Lieutenant Colonel Leonard Hlathi said in a statement.

The man with the gun told his partner to fetch alcohol and some friends to gang rape the girl. He then forcefully undressed her and began to rape her.

“In the process, the suspect tried to kiss the victim, but she bit off his tongue and ran to nearby houses for help,” he said. Police were alerted, tracked down the man and arrested him.

He was being kept under police guard in hospital, but was expected to appear in the Kabokweni Magistrate’s Court when he was discharged.
