Lapu-lapu City Police police marked a man whom Christine Lee Silawan has had in touch with as prime suspect for the teen’s grisly murder.
Senior Superintendent Limuel Obon, held that Silawan has swapped communications with this person at one time. Obon refused to postulate if their previous communication was done through online or texts.
Obon was unable to proclaim if Silawan and the suspect were in a romantic relationship.
“In my definition of ‘boyfriend,’ it means there is some level of closeness and they’ve met numerous times. If that is the case, then I can say that they weren’t lovers. [But if there’s communication], then maybe they are,” Obon clarified.
Obon withdrawn the identity of the suspect in order not to compromise the work of their tracker teams on the ground. Obon added they have robust evidence that points their examination to said person.
“The evidence is strong enough that we are confident that we are looking for the real culprit,” Obon stated.
He added that if they were able to arrest the primary suspect, they are assured of the arrest of two other suspects would immediately follow.
