MANILA, Nov. 15, 2012— A Catholic bishop has demanded justice for a female parish worker who was killed last Tuesday outside a church in Bongao, Tawi-Tawi.
Jolo Bishop Angelito Lampon wants to see the killer of Conchita “Ching” Francisco, an elementary school principal of the Mindanao State University, brought to justice as soon as possible.
According to him, Francisco’s husband, Jhun, was also murdered six years ago and the case remains unsolved until now.
“It’s very pathetic. The victim also has a 4-year old child which has a mental problem,” Lampon told Radio Veritas Thursday.
Francisco has worked for many years as a member of the Our Lady of Most Holy Rosary Parish Pastoral Council in Bongao.
Initial investigation revealed that the victim was shot in the head after attending an evening Mass. The gunmen and motive for the killing remain unknown. (RL/CBCPNews)
