The arrest came following videos and photos of the student’s remains being recovered from an irrigation canal have already circulated on social media.

The suspect was apprehended on Tuesday, according to Provincial Director Police Colonel Jeff Fanged’s interview with Kabayan.

“Kahapon, nai-file na sa provincial prosecutor ang kasong rape with homicide doon sa suspect na nanggahasa at pumatay dito sa ating biktima,” said Fanged.

(Yesterday, the provincial prosecutor filed the charge of rape with homicide against our suspect that sexually assaulted and killed the victim.)

According to Fanged, only one suspect is in custody. Authorities found that the suspect had scratch marks on them, and their slippers were also found at the crime scene.

Police officials are still determining whether or not others were involved in the rape-slay case, saying investigators are also looking for the suspect’s drinking companion, who is also a person of interest.

“Umaasa tayo na pagka-dumating sa husgado ay baka sakaling magsabi na itong nahuli nating suspect dahil sa ngayon, kinokombinsi natin siya na siya lang ang nakakasuhan at kung may mga kasama niya, sabihin niya lang,” Fanged stated.

(We are hoping that when it comes to the judiciary, he will say something. We are convincing him that he is the only one facing charges and that if others are involved, he should say so.)

The suspect is also pointing toward a suitor of the suspect, saying that he was involved. However, Fanged said that it was the suitor who executed a witness affidavit against the suspect.
