Kae's car found in Las Pinas

Manila, Philippines -- Police are inching closer to solving the killing of advertising executive Kristelle ''Kae'' Davantes, following the discovery of her car in a follow-up operation in Las Pinas City early (Sunday) September 15, 2013 morning.

Chief Superintendent Christopher A. Laxa, National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) deputy director for operations and head of the Special Investigation Task Group (SITG) looking into the case, confirmed that the 2011 Toyota Altis car of Davantes, 25, was recovered at the corner of Nickel and Silver Streets in Camella Homes, Pamplona III, Las Piñas.

''It is indeed the car of Kae. The car was abandoned and it has no license plates. We found the car in the area through a concerned citizen who informed us before dawn Sunday,'' Laxa said.

Davantes, senior account manager of an agency connected with the McCann Worldgroup Philippines, was last seen driving the vehicle at the Bonifacio Global City two Fridays ago, hours before her body turned up dead under Tibagan Bridge in Barangay Sabutan, Silang, Cavite on September 7.

''It was identified through the conduction sticker,'' said Senior Supt. Reuben Theodore Sindac, chief police information officer, noting that the vehicle was already stripped of license plates, PIM-966.

Senior Supt. Adolfo Samala, Las Piñas City chief of police, said the suspects attempted to burn the vehicle, but only managed to burn the glove compartment.

As of press time yesterday, investigators were collecting personal items found inside the car and scouring for evidence that may be used to track down Davantes' killers, said Samala.

The recovery of the car, missing for the last eight days is deemed a breakthrough in the Davantes murder case investigation.
