Woman’s body parts found in Pampanga; cops kill suspect
ANGELES CITY—The body parts of a 29-year-old woman were found stuffed inside a washing machine and a suit case in a village here on Monday.
Supt. Narwin Mangune, Angles City chief of police, identified the victim as Lindsey Avelino.
Mangune said Eduardo Pasion, the victim’s live-in partner, was later killed when he resisted arrest and engaged lawmen in a shootout in Purok 2 Barangay Amsic here.
Pasion, a worker in a miniature airplane manufacturing company, confided the crime he committed to his employer who then reported the incident to the police.
Investigators said the victim was killed by her live-in partner apparently because of jealousy. Mangune said Pasion suspected that Avelino was having an affair with another man.
The victim’s torso was found inside a washing machine while her other missing body parts-head, legs and hands-were later found stuffed inside a black travelling bag in a nearby vacant house at 7 p.m.
Mangune said the killing could have been committed at dawn or early morning that day.
Police recovered the. 9mm firearm that the suspect used in shooting the responding police.
Police said the suspect was earlier jailed after the victim filed physical injury charges against him but she later bailed him out./lzb
