She said in a report that the police hid for the past three years after they were reportedly involved in the ambush-slaying of Richard Red Santillan, an aide of Chong, and Gessamyn “Minmin” Casing on Dec. 10, 2018.

The report said the two were killed while aboard Santillan’s car along the road in Cainta town.
