MANILA, Philippines – An alleged rape victim was found dead in Antipolo City last Friday.
The victim, 15-year-old Aira Realis, was found dead at a vacant lot last Friday, November 2.
She was naked and her hands tied using her own clothes. Her body was already decomposing.
"Hindi ko matanggap na ganoon ang ginawa nila sa anak ko. Kung nakita ninyo yung anak ko, hindi ninyo matatanggap talaga. Kawawa po talaga iyung anak ko," said Aira's mother, Lilibeth.
"Ikaw ba naman, kung nakita mong ganoon ang hitsura, talagang pinahirapan at binaboy. Kaya nga sana po ayoko nang maalala iyun kasi kahit gusto ko matulog nakikita ko yung kalagayan ng anak ko na ganon ang hitsura," she added.
Aira was last seen on October 28 when she reportedly left to attend a gathering in Barangay San Jose.
The victim allegedly went with a certain Andrew, Alvin and Orly.
Aira's family is appealing to the three suspects to surrender. – report from Bettina Magsaysay, ABS-CBN News
