Charges of parricide have been filed against the son of a woman whose dead body was found in the trunk of the family car at a subdivision in Camarin, Caloocan City, last month.

Jorge Jose Jorge Jr., 20, was linked to the death of his mother, 49-year-old Marilou, after two witnesses said they saw him driving the family car around 3 a.m. on Nov. 27 and leaving at a nearby basketball court.

Marilou’s body was discovered in the trunk of the Honda Civic (CTF 103) the following day. Her hands were tied and her face covered with a sack. Investigation showed that she died due to severe head injuries. There were also contusions and abrasion on her arms and body.

Senior Supt. Rimas Calixto, Caloocan police chief, said the case against Jorge was filed by the victim’s brother Roel Mandapat last Friday.

On the other hand, Marilou’s husband, Jorge Jose Sr., was charged with obstruction of justice after he prevented policemen from going inside their house to conduct an investigation.

The police also said that based on his sworn statement, the older Jorge had claimed that he left the house with his daughter at 6 a.m. on Nov. 27. At that time, the victim was doing the laundry while his son was about to leave, Jorge had said. His testimony, however, contradicted the statements of the two witnesses who said they saw the younger Jorge driving the family car at 3 a.m.

The police have yet to determine the motive for the crime.

    my comments:
    1. On the other hand, Marilou’s husband, Jorge Jose Sr., was charged with obstruction of justice after he prevented policemen from going inside their house to conduct an investigation.
    – kung may search warrant, walang makakapigil sa mga pulis na halughugin ang bahay. siguro wala silang dalang warrant kaya di pinapasok.

    2. The police also said that based on his sworn statement, the older Jorge had claimed that he left the house with his daughter at 6 a.m. on Nov. 27. At that time, the victim was doing the laundry while his son was about to leave, Jorge had said. His testimony, however, contradicted the statements of the two witnesses who said they saw the younger Jorge driving the family car at 3 a.m.
    – a clear case of perjury, if proved. tama na kasi ang press release, trabaho na lang ang asikasuhin ng mga pulis.

       CORRECT & INCORRECT
      1-You can NOT ”perjure” yourself to any cop or anybody for that fact,,,why? because you are not under OATH…You can however be charged with providing false information to police
      2..the story does not say the CAR was found at the basketball court after JR was seen leaving there at 3am did he leave in the car? or by foot? if by car then SR could very well be telling the truth he saw her at 6am ALSO policemen are not CORONERS who can by body temp rigor mortiss decomposition and insect larvae accurately pinpoint within 1 hour the time of death
      3..he was well within his rights to refuse them admission to the home if they could not produce a court ordered search warrant
      4.the bruises and cuts on her arms and body where defensive wounds meaning she put up a fight,,,was JR or SR scratched up? was the house damaged? broken furniture? where was the car when the body was found in the trunk?

       If that is true, the victim’s husband, daughter, and son were all in the house when the crime occurred. The daughter should be questioned separately from the male members of the family to make sure she is not being controlled, cajoled and not in danger from them. She could be a possible witness or participant in the death of the victim.

    This is the problem when you have an impotent legal system, wait behind 4,000 other case to get yours heard,  the Just US system should work with the PNP and do the necessary paper work to allow them to do their job, issue warrants, file for perjury  etc.
