The Philippine National Police is offering a PhP1-million reward for information leading to the arrest of suspects behind the kidnap-slay of 7-year-old Clarissa Pizarra, whose decomposing body was found last Monday (March 5) in a creek in Parañaque City.
PNP Chief Director General Nicanor Bartolome has personally ordered the investigative arms of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), Southern Police District (SPD) and Parañaque City Police Office to get to the bottom of the crime and give justice to Clarissa.
“I have personally instructed the police commanders of these units to maximize all available resources and manpower to solve this case at the soonest possible time,” Bartolome said.
Bartolome said the PhP1-million reward would come from the PNP Reward System managed by the Directorate for Intelligence.
“We hope the reward will hasten and complement our investigation and provide sufficient leads to identify and prosecute those behind this “sick” crime, Bartolome said.
Clarissa was last seen on February 20, the day she was snatched by unidentified men in Barangay San Dionisio until her body was discovered on March 5 at the Balitahar Creek.
