Senior Police Officer 1 Ansari Pagador, investigator of the Bulua Police Station, identified the victims as Christopher Lastimosa, his wife Leah, and their children Christian, 9 and Chanly, 6.

Pagador said the bodies were discovered after Chona Pepito, Leah’s sister, reported to the police that the family had been missing since Monday.

Chona said she went to the Lastimosas’ house and found Armand Abuyin, Christopher’s helper-mechanic, who claimed that the family had gone to Manila. Chona said she suspected that something was wrong when Abuyin prevented her from entering the house.

With policemen, Chona entered the house at around 10 a.m. Wednesday and found bloodstains in the kitchen which led them to the toilet.

Pagador said the bodies, already in a state of decomposition, were found inside the septic tank.

Abuyin is now detained at the Bulua Police Station.

Pagador said neighbors heard a commotion inside the Lastimosa house at dawn Monday.
