Gruesome parricide case shocks Bicol town

GOA, CAMARINES SUR—The gruesome killing of a father by his eldest son here on Thursday morning has shocked their relatives and the community, after an autopsy of the victim’s body showed some missing internal organs.

Police Officer 1 Richard Capuz, spokesperson of the Goa Municipal Police Office, identified the victim as Eddie Pares Sr., 51, whose body was found covered with a blood-soaked blanket inside a garbage pit at the back of his house in Barangay Tomagongtong, Goa town.

He said Pares’ younger son, Eddie Jr., 16, found his father’s body at 7 a.m.


Investigators tagged the victim’s eldest son Ardy, 29, as the suspect in the killing which, they said, happened around 3 a.m.


Capuz said the municipal health officer who conducted the autopsy discovered that the heart and liver of the older Pares were no longer inside his body.

“The autopsy also showed a long incision on his chest running down to the abdomen,” added Capuz.

Investigators were verifying rumors that Ardy had cooked or eaten the missing internal organs of Pares. Relatives had insisted no such cannibalism happened.

Ardy was arrested on Friday morning in Barangay Baligyan, Presentacion, Camarines Sur province, about 40 kilometers from this town. He is now detained at the Goa Municipal Police Office.

Ardy kept silent when asked if he cooked and ate his father’s internal organs. However, he admitted feeling remorse for the crime he had committed.

He expressed anger at his father who he claimed was “cruel” to him. He believes Eddie Sr. was not his real father.


Eddie Jr. described his brother as “abot-aboton,” a Bicol term for mentally unstable.

The day before the killing, Eddie Jr. said Ardy was scolded by their father for buying the wrong auto spare part.
