ZAMBOANGA CITY: Police have identified the killer of a university president in Zamboanga City. Chief Superintendent Mario Yanga of the regional police force said Denver Cabuyao, who has several aliases, was behind the 2012 killing of Dr. Arturo Eustaquio 3rd, president and chairman of the board of the Universidad de Zamboanga here.
Yanga said Cabuyao is now detained in Zamboanga Sibugay after police captured him for the murder of a tourism official, Jocelyn Luna, in Tungawan town in November last year. Yanga said they have filed criminal charges against Cabuyao, a resident of Arena Blanco village in Zamboanga City. Police are still investigating Cabuyao to determine the motive and mastermind in the murder of Eustaquio, who was shot several times by one of two motorcycle gunmen near his home in Santa Maria village here. Police had offered a P100,000 bounty for information on the identities of Eustaquio’s killers or the mastermind to the murder.
