BACOLOD CITY – Police arrested the suspect in the killing of a senior high school teacher in this city at past 1 a.m. Friday, October 8.

Arresting policemen said Delleon del Rosario did not resist arrest.


According to Lt. Col. Rocky Desear, Cadiz police chief, Del Rosario was hired as a painter at the house of 28-year-old victim Jessica Transmonte Ducay.


Footage from two closed-circuit television cameras showed that Del Rosario was the lone person who entered and exited the Ducay house with the bag of the victim at the time of the crime.

The school teacher was alone in the house at Sitio Canipa-an, Barangay Banquerohan, Cadiz City, Negros Occidental, Wednesday when the suspect hit her head with a hammer and stabbed her to death, Desear said.

Her bag with her identification card and documents were found near a river in Barangay Caduha-an, Cadiz. The P79,000 cash was no longer in the bag.

Desear said the Cadiz police coordinated with the Bacolod police after they received information that Del Rosario’s live-in partner resides in Calong-Calong at Barangay Singcang Airport, Bacolod City.

Del Rosario returned to the house of his live-in partner before dawn Friday and was arrested, Police Major Joery Puerto, Bacolod Police Station 8 commander, said.

Puerto said Del Rosario admitted killing the teacher. The suspect, he said, allegedly stole the money so he could celebrate his birthday.
