Girl raped, killed; One of the suspects nabbed

A 12-YEAR-OLD girl who was reported missing during the New Year’s Eve was found dead in a cave after she was raped by three men at Purok Saging, Barangay Canturay, Sipalay City Friday.

Police identified the fatality as Rochelle Mahilum, a Grade 6 pupil of Genaro Alvarez Extension Elementary School in Barangay Canturay.

One of the suspects, Rolando Lausa, 22, was arrested in a follow-up operation conducted by personnel of Sipalay City Police Station at Barangay 1 at about 7 p.m. Saturday.

Mahilum was found naked with a cloth tied around her neck. She had wounds in her head, and her right leg was broken.

Superintendent Luisito Acebuche, chief of Sipalay City Police Station, said Sunday the girl’s uncle Reynold Mahilum informed them early morning on New Year’s Day that his niece was missing.

Mahilum told the police that his niece was last seen with their neighbor Lausa at about about 10 p.m. Thursday.

The victim’s father and Lausa's father are close friends.

Policemen, together with victim’s relatives and neighbors, helped the girl’s family look for her until her body was found in a cave at about 3:35 p.m. Friday.

Acebuche said Lausa, who could not be located in their barangay, was sighted in a safe house at a resort in Barangay 1 where he was eventually arrested.

He said Lausa admitted that he raped and killed the victim together with his two companions, who are still at-large.

The police chief added that they have already identified Lausa's companions, but he refused to divulge further information because the follow-up operation is ongoing.

Acebuche said he believes that Lausa and his two companions were under the influence of drugs when they committed the crime.

Lausa, a former detainee at Sipalay City Police Station for illegal drugs, will be made to undergo a drug test.

Acebuche said they are waiting for the release of the medical examination today so they can file rape with homicide charges against the suspects.
