MANILA, Philippines – A new witness in the gruesome rape-murder of Anria “Anne” Galang Espiritu of Calumpit, Bulacan has voluntarily come forward to offer information which could strengthen the case against the three suspects.
In a report by GMA News, “Christian” (not his real name), confirmed he saw the 26-year-old victim boarding a green passenger jeepney with a word “Ferrari” on the side, along with another person, on the night Espiritu disappeared and before her lifeless body was found in a remote rice filed on August 14.
Christian told GMA News he clearly remembers seeing Espiritu and the other passenger from the time they hailed the jeep until they boarded the vehicle, but could not confirm the exact time. He only said it happened between midnight of Wednesday and early dawn of Thursday.
He added he recognized Anria because he used to see her in Bagbag, Barangay Ibao in Calumpit. (Click here to read more)
