Lifeless, chopped up and placed in a plastic bag and box — the  remains of a 17-year-old college student was found dumped on a roadside in Barangay De Ocampo, Trece Martirez, Cavite on Friday morning.

The hapless victim was identified in 24 Oras as Mitzi Joy Balunsay, a scholar, youth leader, star dancer, an incoming sophomore tourism student at the Cavite State University, who was found, as per disclosed autopsy results, to have been raped before she was choked to death and then her body chopped up.

The suspect, Alvin delos Angeles, who claimed to be her ex-boyfriend of four months, had been arrested by authorities on Saturday morning and is detained at the Trece Martires Component Police Station.

Reports say that she had texted her parents using a different number; telling them she’ll be sleeping over at a friend’s house to be able to enroll early the following day. But her father emotionally says that the next time he saw his daughter is at the morgue.

Angeles has admitted to the crime and was reported to be asking for forgiveness.

Mitzi’s family and friends, as well as concerned netizens, are crying for justice to be served in this brutal crime committed against this well-loved teenager.

Watch this video report from 24-Oras for more details.

    ganyang klaseng tao ba ang gusto ninyong mamugad dito sa pinas? mga pare at chr asan na kayo? wala ba kayong mapapala sa pakikialam sa mga ganitong pangyayari? pag walang pera na katapat hindi kayo makikialam? dapat kung may totoong adhikain ang mga vigilante force, unahin na ang ganyang tao, wag ng paratingin sa kaso, timbugin agad at ilagay din sa kahon ang pirapirasong bahagi ng katawan, at kung maari din samahan ng isang pari o kaya’y isang miembro ng CHR.

      Dapat parusahan han po ang may kagagawan pero huwag idamay ang pari at CHR wala po silang kaugnayan dito…

        wala nga silang kaugnayan dahil alang pera pero pag politics na may pera kahit boung simbahan ginagamit para pagtkpan nila mga politikong involved sa katiwalian..

    Eye for an eye, palayain na yan, bahala na ang mga kamag anak ng biktima niya magpatawad o magparusa, problem solved.

      Yes terrible. But: It has been proven that death penalty does not stop future killings. Death is an easy escape.

      • Haynakutalaga

        Not about just stopping future killings, retribution can be refreshing to some, let them decide for themselves.

        • Lloyd Nicolaas

          Reasons not to impose death penalty:
          – There is seldom or never 100% certainty that the suspect is indeed the offender. You can never undo death. Many times it has happened that innocent got this penalty.
          – Killing is no comfort for the victim..
          – Killing should NEVER be an option – else you give people the wrong idea to solve issues by killing.

          • Haynakutalaga

            What about the one that confessed, seen on CCTV and identified positively by a witness in broaddaylight at 5 yards away for a full 10 minutes? Can we kill that one? If 100% certainty is a requirement, why do we even bother to catch them, there’s a 1% chance they didnt. It’s a public safety issue as much as retribution and payment of debt to society. A small percentage of vaccinated will have permanent serious mobidity and a minute percentage will die but we still impose them to society.
