Girl found dead inside MMDA impounding area in Pasig
A 23-year-old bank employee was allegedly raped and burned inside an impounding area of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) in Barangay Rosario, Pasig City.
An exclusive 24 Oras report by GMA News’ Emil Sumangil on Monday identified the victim as Mabel Tagala Cama, who went missing last Friday.
Authorities found Cama’s lifeless body on Sunday morning with her underwear placed beside her.
“Kalahati ng katawan, sunog. At nakahubad ‘yung mga pang-itaas na damit,” said Police Senior Inspector Obet Garcia, adding that the victim’s personal belongings were also missing.
The report said the victim was residing at the back of the MMDA impounding area.
Police said they have already established the motive of the crime, but they declined to give further details on it.
However, they were convinced that the perpetrators were the workers inside the impounding area.
“Kung doon nangyari ‘yon at may nagsunog pa, maaari naman sigurong may alam sila kaya kung meron, tumulong po kayo sa amin sa pagresolba ng kasong ito,” Garcia said.
Cama’s family refused to give a statement on the incident as the suspects are still at large. —Anna Felicia Bajo/KBK, GMA News
