The Lapu-Laput City Police Office denied reports circulating in social media of the alleged arrest of the main suspect in the murder of 16 year old Christine Lee Silawan.
In an exclusive interview of DZRH with Police Sr. Insp. Mary Jane Encio, he clarified that authorities continue with their manhunt operations against the suspect on the gruesome killing of the young Cebuana alter girl.
Encio added that they already have a lead on the case and that the CCTV footage they collected is vital in identifying the suspects in the said crime.
Meanwhile, Encio also denied claims that Jonas Bueno, who was arrested in Davao City, is the primary suspect in the Silawan case; but is one of the persons of interest.
Bueno has an outstanding warrant of arrest issued against him by the Davao City RTC branch 25 for the murder of a senior citizen, Trinidad Batucan.
Bueno also skinned his victim and his body was discovered without a chest.
Bueno is believed to be a member of a cult.
