Cops get killer of 2 Caloocan girls



The suspect in the brutal killing of two girls at their home in Caloocan City on Sunday has been arrested by the police in Albay province where he sought shelter in the house of relatives.

Caloocan police said they caught Gilbert Fulloso, the prime suspect in the killing of Diana Rose Liza, 15; and her cousin Joanna Marie Coronado, 10, early  Sunday morning.

Fulloso, 27, was turned over by  relatives to the police after sending surrender feelers.

Chief Insp. Rodrigo Soriano, of the Caloocan investigation department, and Senior Insp. Enrique Torres of the Caloocan warrant section, fetched  the suspect from his relatives’ home in Polangui, Albay, said Caloocan Police chief Rimas Calixto.

The police are set to file murder charges against Fulloso, following evidence that he had planned the killing after Liza, whom he was reportedly  courting, dumped him.

The two girls were home alone at the time of the incident.

Coronado’s younger brother found the bodies when he went to the Liza residence at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday.

Police are still waiting for the results of tests to confirm if the 10-year-old  had been raped.

Both  victims died of multiple stab wounds. A bloodied kitchen knife apparently used  by  the suspect was  found in the  kitchen.

Police added that the suspect, a neighbor of the victims, broke into the house by destroying the lock of the front door.

Drops of blood from the Liza house in Barangay 12, Dagat-Dagatan  led to Fulloso’s home, prompting investigators to consider him a suspect.

A witness claimed that two hours before the bodies were discovered,  the suspect had admitted to her that he killed the girls.

    “A witness claimed that two hours before the bodies were discovered,  the suspect had admitted to her that he killed the girls.”
    Did the witness go immediately to  the police to report the crime?

    If the witness did not make a report, is the witness liable for not doing so?

    • Allan

      that’s what you call accessory after the fact.

      • Mang_Ben

        Thank you so much.

    Bring back Death Penalty for crimes like this.  Bit of advice for women…don’t date criminals or other dangerous psychopaths.

    Castration is the punishment for rapists, and put them behind bars.

  • WeAry_Bat

    Very good.  As I said, there were witnesses.  The lab and DNA results (if any, since costly) should entomb the suspect.  Let’s hope he doesn’t do a gun grab yet, there’s a lot of time for interrogation.

    perhaps these girls was gro’s or sex workers and the sex went bad. dont just blame the suspect but the families for allowing these girls to do this work

    • Nagagalitna

      Hello po napakabata pa yong 10yrs old para maging sex workers…basahin nyo naman po maigi ang report.

      Siguro kapatid kayo ng killer…nawa hindi mangyari sa mga anak nyo ito or sa mga kapatid nyo din kasi sasabihin din ng iba na pokpok din yong anak mo or sis mo kaya pinatay.

    • Edwin Edwin

      I’m absolutely sure you are an IDI0T and a FOCKING STUP1D person for blaming the children as GRO or sex workers….

    • Homer Guo

       pinanganak ka talaga ha!? as in

    • ofwme2807

      may kapatid ka bang babae o kamag-anak na babae? sana pag-ingatin mo sila sa dami ng masasamang tao rapists at addicts wag naman silang matulad sa mga biktimang ito…hindi ka na naawa sa pamilya ng biktima kung anu-anong kahayupang istorya ang iniimbento mo…ang sama mo to the max…

  • Edwin Edwin

    A Quick Remedy = nang-agaw ng baril ng police escort kaya nabaril siya at napatay….

    People will be relieved of this news on this monster….

    Death penalty and the complete eradication of illegal drugs are the answers to this undying killings in this country.

  • DirtyHarryLim

    My policemen would not mind taking care of this evil creature.  The Manila’s finest will make sure that the criminal will be treated fair, BUT if he dares to escape or try to grab my men’s service firearm then all I can say is “Go ahead punk, make my day”.

  • ShineMother

    Palagi nalang may pinapatay sa Caloocan kamakailan.

    ~~Buti naman may ginagawa na yung mga patola dyan.
