BACOLOD CITY — The frozen body parts inside a sack dumped in front of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) office in this city belonged to a male drug personality, according to the law enforcement agency.

NBI Bacolod chief Renoir Baldovino, however, withheld the identity of the person pending verification from a team from the technical division in NBI Manila, who was set to arrive here.


Baldovino said in an interview on March 5 that the victim was identified after following a lead provided by an informant.

He denied reports that there was a rift between two NBI Bacolod agents that could be related to the body-parts case.

“There is no truth to the rumors that the leaving of the body parts could be the work of a person within in the NBI,” he said.

Illegal gambling campaign

Baldovino said the people who left the body parts in front of the NBI office probably wanted to scare or discredit them because of their active campaign against illegal gambling.

He also stressed that it was only coincidental that the CCTV camera at the NBI office was turned off when the body parts were discovered.

The City Police Office has formed a special team to investigate the dumping of the body parts in front of the NBI office.


The sack containing the frozen human body parts was found at 5:45 a.m. Friday, March 1, in front of the NBI office at Aguinaldo Street.

The body parts in a sack included a left arm, left leg, and two ears, said Police Major Glenn Montaño, Bacolod Police Station 2 chief.

A message written on the sack read: “William de Arca NBI protector ni Hanz Lopez drug lord.”

Baldovino said that since he was assigned in Bacolod in 2017, he had not received any reports that Special Investigator William de Arca had been involved in the illegal drugs trade.

The note linking de Arca to illegal drugs could be a diversionary tactic by influential persons behind illegal gambling operations, Baldovino said.
