Kae Davantes fought back vs man in car, says SOCO
MANILA – Police said they've found evidence that another person was in the car of slain ad executive Kae Davantes.
Philippine National Police-Scene of the Crime Operatives (PNP-SOCO) has found traces of blood on the car seat belt used to hogtie Davantes.
Test results showed that the blood is not Davantes's but from a still unidentified male.
Police said it's likely Davantes fought back against her killer.
“Lumalabas na ‘yung dugo doon na na-recover, is of a male person. Pero noong nag-struggle, nasugatan ang mga suspects,” said National Capital Region Police Office deputy regional director for operations Supt. Christopher Laxa.
Police also found a strand of hair inside the car, but it is not Davantes' as well.
Investigators also said Davantes' body was thrown off the bridge in Barangay Sabutan, Silang, Cavite based on the blood splatters at the crime scene.
"Ia-identify natin kung doon ba siya sinaksak sa sasakyan, kung ang sasakyan ba niya ay nakarating sa lugar na ‘yun,” said Laxa.
Task Group Kae is convinced the victim was able to reach her home in Moonwalk Village, Las Piñas and then left again after 10 minutes followed by another vehicle.
Authorities have now set up a police outpost outside Moonwalk and Verdant villages.
With the P2.5 million reward still up, they believe more people will come forward to shed light on the case.
The Davantes family has also asked telecom companies to give a list of people Davantes last called using her two mobile phones.
