Suspect in Tayabas woman’s murder found jailed for homicide in Batangas

- By

CAMP NAKAR, Quezon — A homicide suspect arrested in Rosario, Batangas last November has been tagged by the Tayabas City Police in Quezon as the prime suspect in the murder of a woman last October 5, it was learned yesterday.

Senior Superinten­dent Rhoderick Armamanto, Quezon Police Provincial Office (PPO) director, said investigat­ors have been on the hunt for the killers of Anabel Zorita Boo since she was gunned down while walking along the provincial road in Barangay Wakas, Tayabas City at 10:30 a.m. of October 5.

Senior Police Officer 3 Elmer Manguiat of the Tayabas City Police said he had spoken to several witnesses about the incident until they came across a rogue gallery in which they pointed Edmer M. Ravano, a resident of Barangay Malicboy in Pagbilao as one of the alleged killers of Boo.

Through a follow-up investigat­ion, SPO2 Manguiat traced Ravano’s whereabout­s in Batangas, where he was caught by police and implicated in another homicide in Barangay Mavalor, Rosario town last November 6.

He said a murder charge has been filed against Ravano over the killing of Boo before the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office.

Meanwhile, Armamento said one of the angles being pursued in the investigat­ion is the marital dispute Boo had with her Korean husband.

CALAMBA CITY, Laguna — After serving his six-year jail sentence for a drug conviction in 2013, a tricycle driver was supposed to get back to his life in this city, but was shot dead by an unidentifi­ed gunman last week.

Police said 34-year-old Rolando B. Saturno was already a free man and driving his tricycle when he was gunned down by an unidentifi­ed assailant last Thursday at 5 p.m.

A resident of Barangay Lingga, here, Saturno had just conveyed his passenger to the FGas Store on Burgos Street in Barangay 3, this city, and waiting for his passenger’s LPG tank refill when the shooting happened.

He died on the spot and police later found a sachet of “shabu” in his possession.

A police investigat­or who declined to be named told this correspond­ent that it was likely that Saturno was allegedly involved in drug dealing and double-crossed by his cohorts. (Danny J. Estacio)
