CEBU, Philippines —  The Special Investigation Task Group (SITG) created by the Cebu Provincial Police Office (CPPO) is looking into all angles to solve the killing of lawyer Baby Maria Concepcion Landero-Ole.

CPPO Director Aladdin Collado said they are more on the collaborative evidence based on the accounts of witnesses as well as those personalities that surround the lawyer.

He said they are also looking at the previous cases Ole had handled while searching for more closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage in the area.

"Lahat ng anggulo tinitingnan natin with the public knowledge naman thatshe's a lawyer. And itcould be personal, it could be work-related or evenyung husband niya na nakakulong dati," saidCollado.

"They are the things that we are to consider. We are focusing not only one angle, but all to solve this case," he added.

Meanwhile, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI-7) is preparing for an official investigation once the family of Ole requests for their assistance.

NBI-7 Director Rennan Augustus Oliva said they are gathering information on the killing of Ole that might prove useful in solving the case.

"We are preparing so that we might have leads when we start the official investigation once the family requests for assistance," said Oliva.

He added that they have already visited the crime scene and interviewed individuals who could be potential witnesses while also working on security footage from security cameras in the vicinity.

Ole, a native of Danao City, was shot by two motorcycle-riding men while she was driving her white pick-up along the national highway in Barangay Looc around 2:50 p.m. on December 17.

Witnesses told the police that the assailants shot the victim several times and immediately fled the crime scene heading to the south. — GMR (FREEMAN)
