MANILA, Philippines – Apparently, the death of Dubai overseas Filipino worker (OFW) Lenlie Silpao Oliverio whose picture was circulated online has yet to sink in with her family in Negros Occidental.
While it has been claimed by social media users from Dubai that the 25-year-olf Filipina was allegedly murdered, the Oliverio family from Guiljuñgan town has yet to receive an official confirmation from UAE authorities.
The victim’s father, 45-year-old Eddie Oliverio spoke over the phone with Gulf News and said he only came to know about her daughter’ ‘brutal murder’ after neighbors showed him a Facebook post bearing Lenlie’s picture with a caption that read: “Justice for Lenlie Silpao Oliverio”.
“Lenlie was in touch with us on the 12th, 14th, 16th, and until the 17th of February at 8pm. She was constantly chatting with her sister here. On the 18th, there was no reply to any of our messages to her. That was the last we heard from her,” Gulf News’ Janice Ponce De Leon quoted the father as saying.
Stabbed multiple times
The elder Oliverio also confirmed he has spoken with her daughter’s boyfriend who is currently detained by the Dubai police in connection with the woman’s death. He was also told the victim was stabbed multiple times by a still unknown assailant.
The horrible crime allegedly took place in the England Cluster building in International City.
Gulf News also managed to speak with a certain Nasser, a Pakistani who owns a salon in the same building. He narrated a woman was found dead in one of the flats on February 18.
Nasser also described Lenlie and her Indian boyfriend to be a nice couple.
“They would often visit my salon. She was a very nice girl,” he added. (Click here to read more)
