As most of you who’ve been following VG.no’s articles, Ellah was found wrapped in two blankets and entwined in twine, dumped over a cliff after being brutally murdered. Right now, the Filipino police are holding a Norwegian and a younger Filipina as suspects in the case. They are however, not charged as of yet for the crime.
I’ve visited Cebu, I stayed there for three months and the rest were split between Mindanao and Manila. The people there are humble and some of the nicest you’ll ever meet. This is a very heart breaking story for me, as it should be for everyone. I’d also like to say, that let’s not get hung up with wanting to serve justice quicker then due process allows. I can’t say if the Norwegian is innocent or not, but if he’s not that means the real killers are still out there. That’s why it’s very important for the Cebu police department to follow procedure to ensure that this isn’t the case.
Rest in peace Ellah, I’m deeply saddened by your passing.
