Capitol extends help to murdered teen’s family

The bereaved family of the teenaged girl murdered in Argao town extended their gratitude to Governor Hilario P. Davide III and the Provincial Capitol for all the assistance given to them.

Vice Governor Agnes A. Magpale directed the Provincial Womens Commission(PWC) to provide legal assistance for the quick resolution of the case. She assured PWC is ready to assist the victims family in whatever they need.

Upon knowing of the incident last Monday, Davide immediately instructed the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office to make arrangements for the funeral expenses of the victim.

Apart from burial assistance, relief assistance in the form of food supplies will be given to the family as well.

Conrado Higida, father of 15-year old Jezreel, also received cash assistance from Davide and family.

“Dako kaayo akong pasalamat sa dakong tabang ni Gov diri namo. Sa nahitabo sa akong anak, gitabangan gyud mi niya (I am very grateful to the Governor for all the help hes given to us),” he expressed.

Higida, with lawyer Jonathan Villegas and some officers from Argao police station, visited the Governor right after cases were filed against the three suspects before the Provincial Prosecutors Office.

“Our deepest condolences to you sir, Im very sorry for what happened,” expressed Davide to Higida.

Jezreels body will be buried on Saturday in a public cemetery in Argao, said Higida.
