Sharjah police in Dubai arrested one Filipino on Friday allegedly for killing his married Filipina friend Lorna Lim Varona.
Varona, 51, was last seen driving her Jaguar Sunday (Aug.26). When Lorna didn’t return home that day her family and friends immediately alerted the local authorities and various news outfits, also spreading the news via Facebook, Twitter and other social media.
Her oldest daughter has flown to Dubai from the Philippines ‘to be with her dad and sister and help out in the search for her,’ a niece of Lorna said in a report.
Six days later, police found Varona dead in her car which was abandoned near Industrial Area No.11 in Sharjah , Dubai-based media Emirates 24/7 reported.
The suspected Filipino murderer however confessed to his crime, said Lorna’s husband, also ‘heartbroken’ with no idea yet of what prompted the suspect to kill her wife.
Accordingly Lorna has been living in Dubai for the last 30 years with her husband.
“What can I say? He is an evil man. I don’t know why he did it?” the husband told Emirates 24/7, adding the suspect was a ‘close friend of the family’.
“He was very close to my wife,” the husband also revealed in the report.
