• Suspect in Sta. Rosa rape-slay surrenders as he was bothered by his conscience


    STA. ROSA, Laguna: Ramoncito Galo, one of the suspects in the rape-slay of a mother and the killing of her one-year-old son in Laguna province on March 2, surrendered Friday night to authorities as he was being bothered by his conscience.

    The 25-year-old Galo, who works as a tri-car driver, tagged the mother’s husband as the brains behind the crime, as he was suspicious that his wife was having an affair with another man.

    Senior Supt. Ronnie Montejo, the provincial police director of Laguna, said Galo, who hails from Brgy. Cupang in Metro Manila’s Muntinlupa City, surrendered to Celso Dioko, Cupang’s barangay captain.

    He added that Galo is one of the two men seen on CCTV footage fleeing the scene of robbery and the rape-slay of Pearly Sta. Ana and the killing of her son, Denzel, in Brgy. Labas, in the Laguna town of Sta. Rosa, more than 40 kilometers south of Manila.

    Montejo also said that Galo has admitted participating in the crime, and that he surrendered as what his conscience had dictated him to do.

    The suspect also admitted that he and his companion were hired by a man he called “Boss” to kill the victims for P60,000. Galo said that Boss’s motive in contracting them to commit the crime was “revenge.”

    Dioko said that Galo had identified Boss to him as Richard, Pearly’s husband, who was earlier tagged as a “person of interest” in the crime. ROSELLE AQUINO

      If indeed that the victim’s husband masterminded the rape slay, he deserves to rot in jail. Granting that his suspicion that the wife was having an affair, he could have just severed his relationship with the victim. And the kid, ( the baby) that was likewise murdered? That is why, so many in this country are in favor of restoring back the capital punishment. Paging all lawmakers, you could win million votes if you initiate a bill for the restoration of the death penalty

      Tama suspetsa ko, kasi yong ginawa niya na kesyo nagpadala daw ng message sa kanya sa facebook ang wife niya na pinadala pa ang photo ng killer daw eh defensive siya dito eh, saka naturally kasi kapag nabasa mo yong ganong klaseng message sa mahal mo eh susugod ka na sa bahay niyo kahit nasa trabaho ka pa. Sana si Atty. Persiva, huwag agad agad siyang mag kokomento, Mabait siyang Atty. pero ingat siya kasi nagagamit siya.
