MANILA - The mother of slain teen Kian Delos Santos on Monday told her son's killers to come forward and admit to the crime.

"Sa pumatay sa anak ko: Siguro mas maganda na aminin na lang nila kasi sila naman talaga ang gumawa, humingi sila ng kapatawaran dahil sila naman ang gumawa. Ang hirap kasing tanggapin na basta nilang kinuha ang anak ko," Lorenza Delos Santos told ANC's Headstart.

Kian, 17, was killed in an drug operation in Caloocan City earlier this month.

Police had alleged that Kian delivered drugs for his father and uncles. Officers however told a Senate inquiry Thursday that they only learned about Delos Santos' drug links a day after the operation that left him dead. 

Kian was laid to rest on Saturday, a day after his parents and Public Attorney's Office lawyers filed a murder complaint against Caloocan City police station 7 chief Chief Inspector Amor Cerillo, PO3 Arnel Oares, PO1 Jerwin Cruz, and PO1 Jeremias Pereda for the boy's shooting.

Oares, Cruz, and Pereda were also charged with torture of a minor leading to death.
