Police deny
destroying slay evidence


The police yesterday denied accusations that they destroyed evidence vital to the investigation into the killing of a 39-year-old woman, in front of her two minor daughters, in Hinigaran, Negros Occidental.

SPO1 Sean Llanero, chief investigator of the Hinigaran Police Station, in an interview with ABS-CBN, said they took pictures, documented and preserved the evidences, contrary to allegations.

The family of the victim, Ma. Theresa Vinco, had sought the help of Senior Supt. Allan Guisihan, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, to investigate the Hinigaran police, whom they accused of destroying vital evidences.

Vinco, the 39-year-old wife of an overseas worker, was stabbed dead on June 25 by an unidentified person in front of her two daughters, aged two and four at their home in Brgy. Paticui, Hinigaran.

The victim succumbed to nine stab wounds, about five of which were fatal, police records show.

Guisihan has ordered the provincial Criminal Investigation and Detection Group to take over the investigation from the Hinigaran police.

Chief Inspector Cresenciano Cordero, CIDG provincial officer, said he already dispatched investigators to Hinigaran, to start their investigations, in compliance with the order of Senior Supt. Guisihan.

Cordero said they will tap the services of “forensic experts” to help them.

If there is a violation, Guisihan said those responsible will be administratively sanctioned.*GPB
