A friendship ended tragically after a gay man allegedly ended the life of her best friend because of jealousy.
On June 6, the suspect identified as Racman Panonde, 22, posted a selfie together with the victim, Bea Claire Mori, 15, they’re both residents of Cabadbaran City, Agusan Del Norte.
One day after the meeting between the two, Mori was reportedly missing and one of the first who searched to the victim was the suspect.
Panonde then posted another Facebook status around 8:21 PM, searching for the whereabouts of her best friend.
On June 8, the suspect published a lengthy social media post informing the public that her friend was still missing for more than 24 hours already.
She even said that someone abducted her friend.
“Pasuyo sa mga nakakita sa kanya. Sa CBR siya huling nakita na may kasamang lalaki na hindi namin kilala. Please paki-inform sa mga naka-tag naming barkada kasi masyado na kaming nag-aalala dahil hindi pa siya nagpapakita hanggang ngayon at hindi na rin siya nag-i-FB at hindi pa siya tumatawag sa’min. Duda ko na-kidnap siya. Please contact sa mga naka-tag sa post na ‘to,” the suspect wrote.
The post of the suspect has even gone viral on social media, reaching 4,700 shares.
When the lifeless body of the victim has been found in the public cemetery of Cabadbaran City, Panonde even posted ‘Justice for Bea Claire Mori’.
The suspect even wrote a letter dedicated to the victim.
“‘R.I.P. Byang. Bakit Byang? Bakit ginawa nila sa’yo to, Byang? Nakapakasakit sa amin Byang na tanggapin na wala ka na. Nakaka-miss ang pagka-mongoloid at pagka-praning mo. Higit sa lahat, hindi ka namin makakalimutan. We love you so much, Byang. Sana masaya ka na kung nasaan ka man ngayon. I LOVE YOU, BEA CLAIRE MORI.’” Racman said.
Racman started to get sketchy when someone asked her about what happened to the victim and made a very detailed answer.
Some netizens questioned how Racman was aware of the wound received by the victim despite not yet seeing the latter’s body.
“Yang saksak sa tiyan at paggilit sa leeg ang makakahuli sa’yo. Bakit alam mo lahat ng to, eh wala pa namang result ang autopsy? Memorize mo yata,” one of the netizen told the suspect.
Lt. Colonel Solomon Alemania, chief of Cabadbaran City police then confirmed that Racman is the suspect behind the murder of More.
They said that ‘jealousy’ was the main reason why the suspect ended the life of the victim.
The police investigators found that Racman accused the victim of having a relationship with her 15-year-old boyfriend.
Racman also published a cryptic Facebook post the exact day when the victim went missing.
The suspect is now under the custody of the police and facing murder charges.
The story has gone viral on social media, thanks to netizen Mario Narrido who translated the social media posts of the suspect in Filipino.
As of writing, the post already reached 37,000 likes on social media.
