The Tagbilaran City Prosecutor’s Office has recommended the dismissal of the rape with homicide complaint filed against the suspect behind the rape-slay of Joyce Jabines for lack of evidence.

In a three-page resolution, City Asst. Prosecutor Fara Ricarda Parras-Matuod said that probable cause was not established as the “requirements for circumstantial evidence were not met in the instant case”.

The prosecutor’s office also directed investigating police officers to conduct further investigation and build an “airtight case” against the perpetrator of the crime.

According to the victim’s mother, Felisa Jabines who is also the complainant, one of the witnesses was unable to pinpoint who the suspect was.

Meanwhile, two others claimed that the suspect was not at the scene of the crime during the incident.

The man alleged of the crime also denied the accusations against him during the preliminary investigation at the fiscal’s office which was also attended by Tagbilaran City police officers on July 12, 2016, Jabines said.

Following the promulgation of the resolution, Jabines said that she intends to file a motion for reconsideration but noted that her family lacks finances to pursue the complaint.

Jabines has sought help from those who could help her family in giving justice to her daughter who was brutally killed.

Joyce Jabines, 25, was found dead inside her room at a boarding house along M.H. Del Pilar corner Gallares St., Tagbilaran City on April 19, 2016.

She sustained two stab wounds on the left side of the chest, while her entire face was tightly wrapped with a face towel and tape. (Allen Doydora)
