A 7-year old girl was brutally killed after her head was smashed with a rock in Sitio Mabuhay, Baluno last Sunday.

Police have taken into custody a 12-year old boy linked to the murder of the girl who was also reportedly molested before she was killed near their home in Baluno.

Ayala Police Station Commander Chief Inspector Karib Muharram said that the girl was last seen at their house around 5pm last Sunday.

After a few minutes, parents started looking for the victim as she was nowhere to be found.

Her lifeless body was found at around 7pm by a relative identified as Ruben.  Her family also found a 20-kilo rock, said to be used by the suspect in smashing the victim’s head.

Later that evening, barangay officials of Baluno turned over to the Ayala Police Station a certain Andrew, a 12-year old boy who is also a resident of the same place.

Barangay officials also turned over Andrew’s grey short pants and underwear which were reportedly stained with blood.

Andrew was brought to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD )for custodial purposes.  (Dan Toribio)
