“The tragic news has reached the attention of the President and he, like all Filipinos, has been extremely outraged by this heinous criminal act,” Panelo said in a statement.
Atty. Panelo, meanwhile, hailed the Philippine National Police (PNP) for the arrest of the suspect, 28-year-old Gerald Reparip, who owned up to the crime.
PNP said a test to determine illegal drug use, will be done to the suspect.

“Given the atrocity of this felony, investigation is also being undertaken to determine whether the suspect is under the influence of drugs,” Panelo said.
If proven that the suspect was indeed acting under the influence of drugs, Panelo said this should serve as a sign that the drug war should be beefed up.
“Siyempre ipapaimbestiga natin at lalong papaigtingin natin siguro ‘pag nalaman natin na kagagawan na naman ‘yan ng mga nasa droga (Of course, we will have that investigated and we will strengthen the drug war once we find out it is caused by illegal drugs),” Panelo said in a Palace briefing.

Panelo assured the public that government authorities will bring justice to the family of the young boy and his family.
PNP reports that Reparip admitted raping the the 1 year old boy before eventually choking him to death.
The victim’s body was later found by his grandmother on the 7th floor of an abandoned building.
The police said the suspect admitted being under the influence of alcohol.
