Last week, the nation was shaken with the discovery of a “chopped” body of a girl inside a luggage. The body is that of one of the two girls missing since December. The suspect, a Korean man in his late 30s, was caught last Friday night. Obviously, the country is angry for this heinous crime.
Also last week, news articles came out about a middle school student in Yangju (Gyeonggi province) who was stabbed and killed by a Filipino illegal alien. Both the victim and the suspect lived in the same area. Apparently, the man learned that the girl was left home alone by her parents. He threatened the girl with a knife and forced her out of the house. She fought and was stabbed. Some reports say that she was raped but in one article, it was said that there is no physical that she’d been molested.
I remember that after Christopher Paul Neil was charged with child molestation, the Korean government decided to implement tougher rules for prospective English teachers in Korea. I wonder how this news is going to affect the Filipinos illegally staying in Korea. There should be no excuse for being an illegal alien, but most of them are honest and hard-working. As for the suspect, whose name has not been revealed, he should be punished if found guilty. In my book, there is nothing worse than a crime committed against a child.
