The news about a 12 year old girl who committed suicide because of abject poverty and desperation in life was actually raped. The recent autopsy report on the girl’s cadaver has shown vaginal laceration concluding that the poor and innocent girl was raped. It was also noted that the girl is not capable of killing herself by hanging because she knows nothing about using rope or cable for that matter. This was corroborated by one of the older sister who is familiar with her younger sibling. According to the authorities, there was an incestuous rape and one of the male members of the family could possibly be the suspect. The police investigators have an airtight case and eventually release their findings in a few days time. This is not an isolated case in the Philippines where poverty, hunger and criminality dwell in the poor and desolate neighborhood.
