MARAWI CITY --- The four rape suspects who had confessed to having raped and murdered a 14-year-old Maranaw girl on Aug. 14 were found all dead behind an abandoned hospital building in the city outskirts, officials said Tuesday.No one from the city police, however, can explain how the suspects, detained at the Marawi City jail, disappeared from their cell and ended up dead, with bullet wounds in the head.The slain rape suspects, Jabbar Macacua, Elias Pimping, Salman Udag and Jalil Sani, have all admitted their involvement in the brutal gang rape and subsequent murder of a 13-year-old Maranaw girl on August 14.They were arrested a day after the incident and were immediately detained at the city jail.The suspects were reportedly spirited out of the city jail by a group, to be taken to Bayang town in the first district of Lanao del Sur, hometown of Vice Gov. Haroun Al-Rashid Lucman of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.The rape victim was related by blood to Lucman, according to local officials.The four suspects also confessed to having burned the victim’s cadaver after the rape.
