CCTV footage indicate that Dabalos arrived in the victim’s place around 7 p.m. Tuesday and left 5 a.m. yesterday.

Police said it was Rolando Marquez, safety and security manager Wood Crest, who discovered the wounded man.

Police said a tenant approached Marquez after receiving a text message from a still unknown sender asking him to check on Townsend./CORRESPONDENT CHITO O. ARAGON
