Lapu to reward killer's 2 former live-in partners

ASIDE from his current partner, the two estranged lovers of Renato Llenes—the self-confessed killer of Christine Lee Silawan—will get their respective shares of the P1-million reward money dangled by the Lapu-Lapu City Government.

These three women are among the 23 informants identified as beneficiaries of the bounty.

Lapu-Lapu City Police Office Director Limuel Obon said Llenes’s former live-in partners gave his investigators vital information.

Llenes reportedly left his home in Barangay Pajac, after he committed the crime last March.

His former partners informed the police about his possible hideouts.

Obon said the women helped them in finding and arresting Llenes.

“Usually, if there is reward money, only one person would receive it—the one who gave the very vital information. But our style is different,” he said.

The month-long investigation and search for the killer inspired Obon to value the information that his investigators received from some residents.

Obon said the information of one person led them to another information.

The police official said the informants requested that the reward money be given in private. The other possibility could be that the informants’ shares would be delivered to their respective houses. (From GCM of SuperBalita Cebu, KAL)
