The brutal murder of Kristelle “Kae” Davantes, a senior account manager at McCann Worldgroup Philippines, has puzzled the police, who have yet to find any leads on the case.

Inquirer.net reports that Davantes was last seen driving out of Bonifacio Global City at 1:07 A.M. on September 7. She then reportedly sent a text message to her sister, saying that she was on her way to their home in Las Piñas.

However, Davantes’s body was found under a bridge in Silang, Cavite at around 6:00 A.M. There was a stab wound on her neck, and investigators believe that she had been strangled. Autopsy results have shown that she was not sexually molested.

The Cavite and Taguig police forces are still trying to decipher how Davantes was killed, as well as the motive behind the murder. No arrests have been made yet, and no one has been brought in for questioning. Her car, a beige Toyota Altis, is still nowhere to be found, and her cell phone and other possessions were not recovered.

“We believe she was abducted and killed elsewhere before the body was dumped (in Cavite). We are also looking at more than one suspect,” SPO1 Eric Ambojia of the Cavite police force told Inquirer.net in a phone interview.

However, Supt. Celso Rodriguez of the Taguig police force believe that Davantes’s murder was not an ordinary carnapping case.

“If it was a carnapping case, there seemed to be anger in the way she was killed. She was alone, a female, they could simply just have taken the car,” he said.

McCann Worldgroup Philippines had already released a message expressing their sadness over the crime.

“We are one with the Davantes family in this time of grief and we will continue to offer them our full support,” the statement said. “We respect their request for privacy in this time of bereavement, as we await the complete and accurate details from the ongoing investigation.”

Davantes’s family and friends have also created Justice for KAE, a Facebook page that aims to find her killer.

“Families and friends, let’s all unite. We will not stop until we find justice,” the Facebook page's description read. “To our Kae, we love you so much.”
