From FB to Murder. Justice for 15 year old Ericka! A lesson to all

Note: This is an off topic from the usual watwatworld blog posts but I feel I must share the story for everyone to learn from. The father of the victim is a close family relative. Ericka: the name of the victim, a family member by association, recently turned 15 last July, an active church youth, grade 8 student of Pines National High School was found dead with 21 stab wounds in Pacdal, Baguio City. Gruesome. We were working last  Monday when Ericka's mother and older sister came to say something. They have been searching and asking for Ericka in their Barangay, close friends, classmates and decided they will go around the city to post a "missing girl" poster. Ericka has been missing for a few days. When they were at the Pacdal Barangay hall to paste the poster, someone said that the girl on the picture looked like the unidentified body found earlier that day in a mountain side and was brought to La Paz Funeral homes. Crossing their fingers, they went to La Paz to identify … [Read More...]
