A MAN who has been in hiding for 10 years for the rape-slay of a 16- year-old girl was finally captured by the police on Saturday in Negros Occidental.
Criminal Investigation and Detention Group chief Director Benjamin Magalong, identified the captured fugitive as Edgar Magtulis , who has a P140,000 bounty on his head and is tagged as one of the most wanted persons in Central Visayas.
Magtulis is the primary suspect in raping and killing the 16-year old victim identified only as certain Marife in March 2004 in Brgy. Poblacion, Bago City.
He was nabbed under a warrant of arrest for rape with homicide and frustrated murder issued by Judge Henry Trocino.
