This was one of Cebu’s most popular murder cases. During the night of July 16, 1997, Marijoy and Jacqueline Chiong was abducted by eight men While waiting for a ride home outside Ayala Center Cebu. The two were raped and killed. Marijoy’s body was found in a ravine but her sister’s remains were never found to this day.
In 2011, only daughter Ella Joy Pique bid goodbye to her friends and classmates before boarding a black sports car. She was told that the woman and the foreigner knew her parents and so they would accompany her home. A day after, she was found dead at a foot of a cliff in Barili, naked and tightly wrapped.
On July 2008, Maria Eva Peligro and Gwendolyn Balasta were killed and mutilated in Talisay Cebu.
