A 21-year-old college student who went missing for days was spotted naked and dead at a creekside near Phase III of Hillsview Royale Subdivision in Barangay Timalan Balsahan, Naic.
Residents discovered the body of Mitchie Tolentino Araña sunk in mud and covered with banana leaves around 3 p.m. Friday. The area where her body was found was only a kilometer away from her home. It is believed that the victim was raped before she was strangled to death using a cord recovered near the body.
Senior Superintendent William M. Segun, Cavite Police Provincial Office (PPO) director, told that the local police have determined at least “five persons of interest” in the frightful crime.
Araña is a graduating college student and a scholar of Cavite State University.
