3 cases in San Pedro, Laguna already. Girls of any age getting kidnapped then returned dead with body organs missing like the heart, kidney, eyes. And by the return of the body, there was a sum of money inserted in it (the body or tummy), as if it was the payment for the organs taken.
They said that there this men dressed in doctor suits, driving a closed van, that would kidnap young girls, and lately any person of any age, and take their organs. And leave the dead body somewhere leaving money inside the victim’s body–as thank you payment for the organ.
There had been a victim already at San Pedro, a grade 5 girl student, seen dead with missing kidney.
There was another last week, she's now lying in state, a grade 3 student of Pacita, found dead without eyes and heart, and left 50k (fifty thousand) inside her body. Another case at the Chrysanthemum Village, they abducted a young girl but a trycicle driver heard them, he chased the van, at the end, the child was thrown from the window of the van. Punctualed.
And just last week, there should be two girls kidnapped in Reysal Supermarket, but some people saw them, the two were helped and not been caught. I also heard that there are same cases in Batangas and Manila. So be careful to wherever you go.
1. VXE 351 – Green Van
2. VMM 507 – White Van
Kidnapping is rampant nowadays. Kidnappers usually asked ransom money from the parents of their victims. But lately, I was disturbed of the news about the kidnap victims whose internal organs were missing after they were found.
In Ibaan, Batangas four children were abducted. One of them were found with the pair of eyes missing and with Php 30,000 pesos on his/her mouth. Three were found with missing internal organs. There was also report in Tanauan, Batangas with a missing heart and Php 8,000 pesos on the hole of the victim’s chest. It’s really creepy.
Lately, there have been reports that the kidnappings is not only happening in Batangas. There were also similar incidents in Cavite and Laguna. Last Wednesday, March 5, there was a third year high school student (from a school in San Pedro, Laguna) was abducted on her way home. I still haven’t heard about what happened to the victim.
I heard that a syndicate is behind this kidnapping and they are selling the organs to the black market. Text messages and email messages has been circulating saying that a white van with plate no. VMM 507 is said to be the kidnappers van. the cartographic sketch of the kidnapper and the plate no. of the vehicle used by the kidnapper were posted everywhere.
Residents in the area of Laguna were already afraid. Students going to school were now accompanied by their parents and yayas. It has been reported that the kidnappers where luring children going to and from school. Our school management even released a letter to parents to watch for their children when going to school and while playing outside their houses.
Corpses of children, their organs carved out of their bodies, dumped by the roadside. Two schools on red alert. A province caught in a wave of panic.
This is not Mexico or Latin America, where organ harvesting has been a practice for decades now. This is right here.
Residents of Nueva Ecija are gripped by fear after five children who were allegedly snatched and reported missing later turned up dead, their internal organs and eyes missing.
Ranging in age from three to 12 years old, the victims were dumped in separate incidents in Gapan, Sto. Niño, San Lorenzo, Sta. Rosa and San Leonardo towns in Nueva Ecija — their bodies “harvested” of their heart, kidneys, and liver. In one case, the eyes were gouged.
Cash in opened stomach
In another, P7,000 in cold, hard cash was inserted in the stomach cavity, slit wide open. (for funeral expenses), opined the stunned finders of the body.
Aniceto Fabito, a concerned parent, said school authorities at Divina Pastora College and San Nicolas Elementary School in Gapan, summoned parents to an emergency conference last Sept. 15 to warn the parents about organ-harvesting body snatchers stalking their communities.
“We were told not to leave our children unattended or to allow them to go to school unaccompanied,” he said.
Internal organs fetch astronomical prices in the international black market and are a lucrative trade for criminal syndicates.
“The syndicate was bold enough to leave money inside the empty stomach for the burial of the child they snatched,” Fabito said. “We are asking the police to get to the bottom of these grisly crimes.”
According to Fabito, the kid-snatching began last week of August, a few days after the bodies were dumped one by one along busy roads for the parents to find.
Last Friday, an unsuccessful attempt was made on a one-year-old child. It was unsuccessful because the community was alerted to the suspected kidnapper, identified as Ricardo Yumson, whom they pounced on.
Gapan authorities later released Yumson, claiming he was demented and not responsible for his actions.
“The police did not even bother to interrogate Yumson,” said a frustrated Fabito. “We were told that this is the modus operandi of members of the syndicate if caught — they either feign ignorance or act crazy so that lawmen would believe they are not responsible.”
Fabito cited the case of one mother who tried to fight off the kidnappers and was likewise taken away by the body snatchers. Both mother and child have been missing since August.
As a result, residents feel the police are not to be trusted.
“We cannot rely on the police, so we decided to go straight to media,” Fabito said.
According to Philippine National Police spokesperson Leopoldo Bataoil, provincial director Louie Palmera did not receive any such report.
Later, Bataoil — in a txt message — said he directed Palmera to order his chiefs of police and police community relations officer to join the school officials who will meet parents to allay fears on this report.
Residents have assigned foot patrols composed of barangay officials and youth volunteers.
The authorities continued their investigation on the syndicate behind the alleged organ trafficking. They traced the areas where stories about a white van and men in bonnets were circulating but could not find any evidence that they existed.
Until finally, they were able to trace the origin of the stories—Tarlac province.
And, according to the authorities, this story passed on until it eventually evolved into the story of a syndicate kidnapping children for their organs.
