THE Mandaluyong police filed charges against security personnel of SM Megamall after they allegedly “tampered” with and alter the crime scene on the death of an 18-year-old student, who leaped to her death after being reprimanded for posting video on Facebook kissing her girlfriend on Monday.
According to Senior Supt. Joaquin Alva, Mandaluyong police chief, charges of obstruction of justice were filed yesterday before the Mandaluyong City Prosecutor’s Office against Bryan Abiso, Ericson Masirag and Jeorge Cansico, all from Combine Security Agency.
Alva said the said security personnel “tampered” the crime scene by covering with blue cloth the body of Jessa Logo, first year BS Education student of Rizal Technological University (RTU), when she landed on the upper ground floor of the SM Megamall.
“Sa training, disposition kapag ang isang tao buhay pa ay itakbo agad sa ospital, bigyan muna ng first aid at ilagay sa stretcher. Pero pagbagsak nu’ng biktima tinignan nila kung patay, tapos tinakpan nila ng blue na tela. Dapat may proper handling ng body,” Alva said in an interview.
Insp. Danilo Esguerra, Mandaluyong Police Criminal Investigation chief, said Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) certified that the crime scene was tampered after they saw some changes when they arrived.
“Pagdating du’n, may basahan na, tinakluban ng basahan. Siympre nag-absorb na ’yung mga blood stain, nilagyan nila ng makeshift tent na kulay white ’yung area...,” Esguerra said.
