NBI files parricide raps vs son who killed, placed inside storage box his own mom
MANILA, Philippines — The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) filed before the Department of Justice (DOJ) a complaint for parricide against the son who admitted to killing his mother and disposing of her body by placing it in a plastic storage box and leaving it in a grassy lot in Bulacan.
“Yesterday (March 14), the NBI-AOTCD (Anti-Organized and Transnational Crime Division) brought Raymund Villastique to DOJ for inquest proceedings. He was charged for parricide,” NBI spokesperson Atty. Giselle Dumlao said in a text message.
Raymund surrendered to the Pasig police and admitted to the killing.
Dumlao said Raymund had executed a confession on March 13, and admitted to killing his mother inside their house in Pasig City by hitting her in the head using a blunt instrument.
Dumlao said the NBI also examined the house and found bloodstains, plus they also have a copy of a CCTV footage showing him dragging a heavy storage box outside their house and into his vehicle.
The body of Raymund’s mother, 67-year-old Maria Estrella Villastique, was discovered by locals stuffed inside the same storage box in Sitio Kanyakan, Barangay Matictic in Norzagaray, Bulacan.
Dumlao said the murder weapon was no longer recovered as Raymund admitted throwing it at a passing garbage truck.
The suspect told authorities that he killed his mother because he was fed up hearing her nagging him and degrading his personality most of the time.
