BALANGA CITY, Bataan – Bataeños are up in arms over the bru­tal killing of two young lovers whose vi­o­lated bod­ies were found by fish­er­men float­ing off the wa­ters of Pi­lar and Orion town, Sun­day.

Gov­er­nor Abet S. Gar­cia has since of­fered a cash re­ward of up to ₱500,000 to any­one who can iden­tify the per­pe­tra­tors of the crime.

It is be­lieved the two vic­tims, iden­ti­fied as Glory May Car­bonell and James Carl Guz­man, went on a date Satur­day night at Wet­land Park, a major tourist at­trac­tion in barangay Tor­tu­gas, Balanga City.

Chief In­spec­tor Aylin Perez, chief of Bataan PNP crime lab­o­ra­tory, con­firmed the girl was raped.

Perez added the girl was struck by a hard ob­ject in dif­fer­ent parts of her body.

Guz­man is be­lieved to have died af­ter be­ing hit by a hard ob­ject at the back of his head.

Supt. Joel Tampis, Balanga po­lice chief, said they al­ready have a lead on the killing.

"We al­ready have a sus­pect but Gov. Gar­cia wants to make sure we got the real cul­prit and not just a fall guy," said Tampis.
