MANILA – A Filipino American suspect in the killing of a woman from Subic, Zambales fled the country a day after the crime was committed last Saturday.
The suspect, identified as Jonathan Dewayne Ciocon Viane, left the Philippines Sunday morning, according to records from the Bureau of Immigration (BI).
Viane, 29, hails from Anchorage, Alaska.
According to immigration records, the alleged suspect boarded an Eva Air flight bound for the United States via Taipei on Sunday morning.
The flight came less than 24 hours after the murder of Karie Ces “Aika” De Dios Mojica, a 23-year-old resident of Subic, Zambales.
The victim was reported missing on Saturday afternoon after she failed to come home from the birthday party of her best friend Friday evening. Her best friend was Viane’s former wife.
The body of the victim was later found dumped at a dike along Sto. Tomas River in San Felipe, Zambales.
Authorities said the victim was choked, shot thrice in the head, and burned.
“Sabi niya sa akin di niya ko iiwan,” the victim’s grieving father, Joser Mojica, said. “Gusto ko ako yung ililibing nila, hindi sila ang ililibing ko, hindi yung mga anak ko ang ililibing ko.”
