Dingdong Dantes's crime documentary drama program, Case Solved, aired its pilot episode last Saturday, February 18, 2017.
The new GMA-7 program earned on the No. 1 spot on Twitter trending topics that day.
The pilot episode tackled a rape case that made use of DNA evidence.
In 1999, a little girl named Myla was raped by a man named Gerrico Vallejo.
At that time, the testimonies of residents were used as basis to put him in jail. However, investigators made use of DNA technology to find out the truth.
The rape case was said to be the landmark court case since it was the first time in the Philippines that DNA used as evidence to solve a crime.
The Supreme Court of the Philippines paved the way for an organized way of collecting DNA samples. The SC decision was eventually called the “Vallejo Ruling.”
In the end, Vallejo’s DNA was found inside Myla’s sensitive part of her body and he was found guilty.
