Slain girl's body found floating in Cavite river (+photo)

The body of a 15-year-old girl identified as Marinel Obeja Largo was found floating in a river Monday morning in Barangay Marulas, Kawit, Cavite.

Believed to have been raped before she was killed, the pretty teenager sustained stab wounds in the neck and abdomen, according to a report published on Tempo.

The case investigator, PO3 Plaridel Daprosa, reportedly said the victim had no underwear when found near the exit gate of Cavite Expressway (Cavitex) at 8:30 a.m. on March 9.

Largo, who was last seen drinking with a group in a friend's birthday party Sunday afternoon in Marulas, was allegedly in the company of one Dan Rex Enriquez, a resident of Barangay Ligtong in Rosario town, before she went missing.

Enriquez was tagged by authorities as a rape-slay suspect as his t-shirt was recovered at the scene where the incident took place. Since he is nowhere to be found, a manhunt operation for his capture was launched on Tuesday, March 10.
