Laoag City—Relatives of murdered teenager Donna Mae Doña have offered P100,000 as reward for anyone who can help in pinpointing the mastermind/s of the grisly crime.

Donna Mae was found dead at the Talingaan Sand Dunes in this city on May 25, 2015.

The reward money was put up after the victim’s interment. Originally, the victim’s uncle, identified only as “Berlin” offered P50,000 as reward for the capture of the victim’s killer/s; he later doubled the reward money to P100,000.

Donna Mae is from Brgy. Casili in this city, was 17 years old and was enrolled for this school year.

Reacting to this, Laoag Mayor Chevylle V. Fariñas said she will confer with Laoag police chief P/Supt. Jeffrey Gorospe on whether the reward money is a “wise” option.

She explained that the city government has so far not offered any reward for any case since “Masol-solvar met dagitay kas-kaso”.

She however stressed that she would rely on the recommendation of the police chief on this matter.

Reached for his own comment, Mr. Gorospe said: “Nasayaat met daytoy kapanunutan iti pamilya ni Dona Mae a mangted dat reward ta bareng adda makaited ti impormasyon a pangrugyan tapnu masolbar daytoy a kaso.”

Mr. Gorospe however stressed that the on-going investigation will not be affected by the reward money offered.

He added that the only problem he sees in offering a reward money is that some people may give misleading information because of it and may result in confusing the ongoing investigation.

As of press time, Mr. Gorospe disclosed that they still has no eyewitness yet neither any witness that can even give even the smallest description of the suspect/s.

Donna Mae’s remains was discovered by Benny Ruiz, chief tanod of Brgy. Talingaan on May 25, 2015 at about 6:50 am. The victim was not identified until after a day since she was found.


Post mortem examinations stated that the victim suffered around 40 stab wounds in different parts of her body that caused her death.
