A FEMALE teenager was found dead in a creek behind a high school campus in Barangay Felisa, Bacolod City Friday morning, October 20.
Police Officer 3 Leomel Guinanao, investigator of Police Station 10, identified the fatality as Hilhary Baynosa, 19, of Purok Paho, Sayson Village.
The victim, who was half-naked, was found by a male student around 8:30 a.m.
Guinanao said the victim may have been hit by a hard object because of the wound in her head.
He said they have identified six persons of interest, including a minor that was seen with the victim before she was found dead.
They were invited to the police station for interrogation.
Baynosa was last seen on October 18, according to her family but a village watchman saw the victim on October 19.
Guinanao said the watchman alleged that he saw a man on a bike following the victim when she decided to go home on a rainy evening.
He added that they cannot yet conclude if the victim was sexually abused.
Her body will be subjected to an autopsy. (GYM)
