CHR team exhumes
body of girl believed beaten

Medico legal experts from the Commission on Human Rights in Manila arrived yesterday in Dumaguete City to exhume the body of a 7-year-old girl, who died allegedly of a brain tumor last month, on suspicion she was allegedly mauled by her father.

Negros Oriental CHR special field investigator, Jess Cañete, said the team is led by medical legal expert, Dr. Ludivino Lagat, who was requested by the mother of the victim for an autopsy of her child.

The mother is hoping to find more evidence to support a criminal complaint against her husband, who retired from the Philippine Navy in 2014..
