MANILA, Philippines - The car driven by Kristelle "Kae" Davantes when she left Bonifacio Global City Saturday morning and which has been missing since the discovery of her brutal killing, was reportedly spotted in Laguna province, police officials said.

The car, which was reportedly found in Paete town in Laguna, holds the key to finding clues leading to the solution of the crime, police said.

The 25-year old advertising executive was seen in a CCTV camera driving her silver gray Toyota Altis (PIM 966) at BGC past 1 a.m. Saturday before her lifeless body was found underneath a bridge by residents in Silang, Cavite.

Police also believe that Davantes may have been killed by at least two assailants.

According to results of the medico-legal examination, Davantes sustained five stab wounds over her body, with a deep wound in the neck that resulted in her instant death. She was also strangled with a nylon cord, resulting in the collapse of her right lung.

The way her mouth was muzzled and how she was strapped with the car's seat belt suggest she may not have been killed by only one assailant, police said.

Authorities are not discounting the possibility that a female criminal may have killed Davantes.

"It could have been done by a female, especially by the way she was stabbed," Chief Superintendent Christopher Laxa of Task Group Kae said.

But police admitted that they remained clueless as to the real motive behind the crime - aside from carnapping - unless they get hard evidence.

Davantes will be buried at 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 15, at the Manila Memorial Park in Sucat, Parañaque City.
