Homicide raps being readied vs suspect of Campbell slay

Manila (25 April) -- Despite being considered as an isolated case especially in the Cordillera Mountains, the Philippine government is doing its best in giving justice to the death of US Peace Corps volunteer Julia Campbell so as not to further dampen the image of the country amid incidence of terrorism and extra-judicial killings.

Homicide raps are now being readied for Banaue, Ifugao local woodcarver Juan Duntongan, the suspect in the killing of Campbell, who went missing the day after the US volunteer was killed.

Evidences recovered at the crime scene strongly point to Duntongan as the killer, including the murder weapon-a bloodstained hardwood commonly used to pound rice-which was seen near the assailant's house.

Authorities are also looking at the possibility that Duntongan was not alone when he committed the crime but the second assailant has yet been identified.

Meanwhile, Cordillera's tribal leaders have vowed to help hunt down the killer of Campbell, saying the killing has given their place a bad name and affected the tourist arrival in the world-famous Banaue Rice Terraces in Banaue, Ifugao.

Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Oscar Calderon welcomed the idea and said that they need all the assistance they can get to help solve the Campbell case immediately. (PIA 10) [top]
