Zamboanga City – The woman victim who was found dead on Friday, January 6, at a bypass road in Zamboanga City has been identified.
Erica Jane Calunod Rosal, a 20-year-old Education student at Zamboanga State College of Marine Sciences and Technology (ZSCMST), was identified by her parents through the clothes and shoes she was wearing, according to a Bombo Radyo story.
As per information gathered by Star FM Zamboanga, the supposedly graduating student had asked for permission from her parents to work on a thesis together with her classmates at Barangay Baliwasan.
As of posting, an in-depth investigation is reportedly being conducted to determine the perpetrators involved in the student’s death.
Erica’s friends and classmates have expressed shock and disbelief over the tragic demise of “Ikang”, as she is fondly called, and who’s described as a cheerful and supportive friend. Tributes poured in for the hapless victim who deserves justice.
Meanwhile, a Facebook page, Emedia Mo, has shared a video in the locals’ language, Chavacano (or Philippine Creole Spanish which is a Spanish-based creole language spoken in parts of the Philippines, especially in and around the city of Zamboanga, by over 600,000 people). The caption says: CADAVER DEL 19 ANIOS MUJER YA ENCUNTRA NA LUBRIGO PORTION DEL. BYPASS ROAD NUAY PA IDENTIFICATION!…

Commenters on the posted video called on their city government to take charge and to implement strong security, peace and order. Others are clamoring for street lights and CCTVs as the bypass road is not really safe at all.
