The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) held a press conference on March 18 to disclose some updates on their investigation regarding the brutal murder of 16-year-old Christine Lee Silawan.

The NBI said that they were able to retrieve some information from Silawan’s Facebook which led them to the suspect.

It was earlier reported that the boyfriend of Silawan was arrested and confessed to the crime of killing the Cebu student.

The NBI did not disclose the name of the suspect as he is a minor but text messages and security footages helped them track his whereabouts.

According to their conversation on Facebook Messenger, they were supposed to meet at a church in Pajac, Lapu-lapu City.

As seen in the CCTV footage, Silawan was eating balut with her friends around 5:50 PM.

Ten minutes after, the suspect was seen on his way to the church where they were supposed to meet.

A few minutes after 6:12 PM, Silawan was seen walking together with the suspect.

The last few parts of the CCTV footage show Silawan and the suspect walking toward the vacant lot where her body was found dead.

According to post mortem findings, Silawan was murdered around 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

The 17-year-old suspect was arrested in Maribago, Lapu-Lapu City on March 16.

A witness also confirmed that he is the person who was with Silawan on the night she got murdered.

Local reports in Cebu said the minor confessed that he had two other accomplices in committing the gruesome crime, saying that he killed the victim out of jealousy.

The press conference was uploaded by Cebu Daily News on their Facebook account.
