Killer’s son confesses farmer’s murder in Isabela – police
QUEZON, Isabela – Bothered by his conscience, a teenager had confessed to the police that his father had hacked to death a farmer, whose body was found at an irrigation canal here on Thursday.
Police said the fatality, Ramon Cuizon, 63, of Arellano village, had a drinking session with the suspected killer, Edwin Sequin, until late night on Wednesday.
Sequin and Cuizon argued over a past personal dispute, investigators said.
Edwin’s son Jerry admitted that he saw his father hacking Cuizon to death.
The elder Sequin had dragged Cuizon’s body into the irrigation canal to conceal the killing, police said.
Village captain Oliver Loyosen of Barangay Lepanto said they found Cuizon’s body in Arellano village.
The victim’s body was identified by a friend.
Capt. Fresiel Dela Cruz, Quezon acting police chief, said they found bloodstains at the farmhouse of the Sequin family.
Police found the bolo used by Sequin, who was immediately indicted for murder.
