One of the witnesses testified that he saw the suspect with a rice sack containing the head of another farmer.

This prompted police officers to respond to the scene, where they saw the headless body of the victim, identified as Joel Avila, 58. The headless body, according to police, was found in the ravine while its head was recovered more or less 500 meters away.

Authorities then received information that the suspect was located in a small hut near the crime scene. They proceeded to the site to arrest the suspect.

Upon their arrival near the hut, police officers asked Padere about the hacking incident but the suspect reportedly raised his bolo and rushed towards the law enforcers.

This prompted a member of the responding team to shoot the suspect, who instantly died. — Vance Chan, trainee
