Rape victim commits suicide

ROXAS CITY, Capiz – A 27-year-old woman who was allegedly raped by a tricycle driver committed suicide early Sunday morning at Narra Road in Brgy. Punta Tabuc here.

Rosa (not her real name) who temporarily resided here went out for drinks with some friends Saturday evening. She went home 3 a.m. the following day.

But the driver of the tricycle she hired allegedly brought her to a secluded area and raped her.

Her neighbours later noticed that the victim arrived home crying and was looking for her 8-month-old child.

The victim told her eldest son to get out from the room as she will change her clothes. They later found her hanging by her neck.

Rosa was declared dead in a hospital here.

The police have been investigating allegations that she was raped.

According to the neighbours, the victim always quarrelled with her live-in partner which is the reason for her late night drinking binges.
