THE Bulacan police solved the killing of a 28-year-old single parent and her two young kids in San Jose del Monte City following the arrest of two men who confessed to the gruesome crime.
In a report to Police Regional Office 3 director Brig. Gen. Joel Napoleon Coronel, the Police Provincial Office identified the confessed suspects as Wlson Nosal, 23; and Joselito Cortez, 48.
Both admitted to killing Jaymee Casabuena Biding and her sons Anton Gabriel, 8; and Joaquin Mateo, 4, in the victims house at Carissa 2A, Bgy. Kaypian in San Jose del Monte City.
Nosal turned out to be a live-in partner of a relative of Biding.
Bulacan police director Col. Chito Bersaluna said that the bloated bodies of the three were discovered by a relative at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The victims were believed to have been dead for several hours.
The victims’ relative decided to check on them after Jaymee failed to reply to her repeated text messages.
Around 4:30 a.m. yesterday, Bersaluna said that members of the San Jose del Monte City Police Station headed by Lt. Col. Orlando Castil, joined by agents of the National Bureau of Investigation, conducted a follow-up operation in Bgy. 185, Malaria, Caloocan City where Nosal, a native of Norzagaray residing in the Caloocan village, was arrested.
Two hours-and-a-half later, officers arrested Nosal’s cohort who was later identified as Cortes, a resident of Area-D, Blk. 12, Bgy. Terona, Cavite on the boundary of Bgy. San Manuel in San Jose del Monte City.
According to the Bulacan police, several neighbors of the victims helped them identify and arrest the suspects by pointing to their whereabouts.
