Villa said the body would arrive in Manila at 11am on Friday. He also said the Ministry of Interior in Kuwait was hunting for a Lebanese man and his Syrian wife who are suspected of killing Demafelis.

An autopsy report found that Demafelis died because of severe beatings, allegedly by her employers. She had several broken ribs and suffered from internal bleeding, reported.

She also suffered contusions and trauma in her pelvic and kidney area, evidently caused by regular beatings.
