PNP chief hails Cadiz cops for solving killing of teacher
BACOLOD CITY––Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar has commended the Cadiz City police in Negros Occidental for immediately solving the robbery-killing of a senior high school teacher.
“I commend our personnel at the Cadiz City Police Station led by PLt. Col. Rocky Desear for the speedy resolution of the killing of senior high school teacher Jessica Ducay,” said Eleazar, who was in Negros Occidental last Saturday.
Ducay, 28, was killed Oct. 6 inside her house at Sitio Canipa-an, Barangay Banquerohan, Cadiz City.
The teacher was alone in the house when the suspect hit her head with a hammer and stabbed her to death.
Two days later, the police arrested Delleon Del Rosario, who was accused of stealing P79,000 from the teacher.
Desear said Ducay hired Del Rosario to paint her house.
Footage from two closed-circuit television cameras showed that Del Rosario was the lone person who entered and exited Ducay’s house, bringing the victim’s bag after committing the crime.
