THE Camarines Sur National High School (CSNHS) expressed its gratitude to Naga City Mayor Nelson Legacion, Rep. Gabriel Bordado Jr. of the 3rd district of Camarines Sur, and businessman Nonoy Magtuto for the reward money they offered to anyone who can provide information that will lead to the arrest of the suspects in Roselle Bandojo killing.

Bandojo, 17, of Barangay Peñafrancia, Naga City was reported missing on July 22, this year. Last week, July 28, her decomposing body was found in a grassy unoccupied lot at the corner of Acacia St., Barangay Liboton, here, few meters away from her house.

On July 29, a day after authorities discovered her cadaver, Mayor Nelson Legacion, on his social media account, condemned the murder of the young lass and offered P100,000 reward money for anyone who can assist the police to identify and locate her killers.

For the same intention, Bordado and Magtuto also offered a reward money of P100,000 each.

In an interview, Sulpicio Alferez III, CSNHS principal, told Bicol Mail that the money they offered may serve to expedite the solution of the crime.

He stressed that Bandojo, an incoming Grade 12 student, is a big loss to the school as she was one of the school’s bests with academic excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics strand.

Pained by Roselle’s death, Alferez reminded parents and guardians to take care of their young ones so that similar incidents will not happen again. “We have to exert extra effort to avoid incidents like this one [Roselle’s fate],” he said.

“We always see to it that our students are protected within the walls of our campuses. We cannot guarantee, however, their safety outside of the school. Parents, please strictly monitor your children. Let’s not allow them to stay outside our homes in the late evenings,” he said.

Alferez said that the school, under his supervision, has already coordinated with barangay officials and the police with regard to ensuring the safety and security of the students outside the school premises.

As of this writing, police authorities are gathering evidences that will confirm the participation of four individuals in the killing.

The police investigators found an underwear and strands of hair near the area where Roselle’s body was located.

Result of the post-mortem examination on her body revealed that the victim was strangulated to death.
