Couple admits killing Filipina maid
Victim crushed to death by car
KUWAIT CITY, July 17: Detectives belonging to Ahmadi CID have unraveled the murder mystery of a Filipino woman whose corpse was found near horse stables area in Kabad on Thursday.
Sources say the sleuths managed to identify the victim as a housemaid who worked for a Kuwaiti family. The family had returned the maid to a domestic workers’ office over three months ago.
Officers came to know that another Kuwaiti woman had hired the maid using a stolen ID card and fictitious phone numbers. The woman, who stays in Salwa, later confessed that she and her husband maltreated the maid on a daily basis. When they feared that the maid would die, they took her in their car to the stables area and crushed her under their vehicle to give an impression that she was run over by a motorist. The woman’s husband also corroborated her confession.
Earlier, when officers reached the address the woman gave at the domestic workers’ office, they found another woman who had no clue about the victim. They then discovered that the suspects stole the ID card of the woman to employ the victim. After a lot of effort, investigation men finally managed to reach the suspects and arrested them. Officers found out that the woman had earlier maltreated several other housemaids.
