- An OFW has snuffed the life out of her "best friend" OFW because of debts
- She then dismembered the body, placed them inside a luggage bag with other parts in various receptacles
- The heinous details were documented in a book which enumerated crimes which shook Singapore
What transpired between two OFWs in 2005 in Singapore, have left the entire country shaken.
The gruesome manner by which the OFW killed her fellow Filipino because of death was something that became hard to ponder for people living in a country with a low crime rate.
KAMI learned that Jane Parangan La Puebla was a Filipino DH in Singapore. Her friend, Guen Garlejo Aguilar, 29, was also a DH in the said country.
The story unfolded in 2005 when a cleaner discovered an unattended luggage bag at a subway station, which contained severed parts of a woman's body.
On the same day, a civil servant called the police after becoming suspicious of a black trolley bag near a bus stop.
As reported in Pinoy-OFW, the e-book, "Guilty As Charged: 25 Crimes That Have Shaken Singapore Since 1965," published on July 2015, gave details on how the crime was perpetrated.
It pointed out that the reason behind the gruesome death of La Puebla was her unpaid debt to Aguilar.
Two days before the discovery of the body, Aguilar and La Puebla were together at the kitchen discussing.
However, Aguilar mentioned the $2000 debt La Puebla owed her. When the latter became agitated, they started fighting.
Aguilar then smothered La Puebla, which caused the latter's death. Afraid of being found, Aguilar dismembered La Puebla and hid the parts in two different containers - the bag and the trolley.
She then placed the two receptacles in different locations, which were later discovered.
Aguilar was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment.
The sad thing about Aguilar and La Puebla's story was that they were friends, and what shattered it all was an unpaid debt. May their story serve as a reminder to all.
The e-book was a collaboration between Singapore Police Force and Straits Times.
