Police reports say that last September 27, Brgy. Kagawad Arnold Parpan y Rojas, together with barangay tanods Lamberto Callo y Aguirre and Eddie Plaza y Candelaria turned over to the police station one of the suspects identified as Danilo de Mesa, of Sitio Contod, Brgy. Tabgon.
They declared that at around 10:20 am of the same day, Arwin Mariano y Danieles, a resident of Brgy. Tabgon, told them that he went to the store of the victim to buy some ingredients. Since nobody was attending to the store, he proceeded to the back of the victim’s house upon hearing some noise, which he wanted to verify.
He saw Danilo de Mesa who upon noticing his presence immediately ran away.
He then went back to the front of the said house where he saw Andrea Alarcon y Pasiona, lying with her face on the floor.
Immediately, Mariano called the attention of their neighbors, with Florencio Parpan as the first to come for help.
The victim was brought to the hospital, but she was pronounced dead by the attending physician.
Meanwhile, in the afternoon of the same date, they arrested the suspect, Danilo de Mesa, and brought him to the barangay hall.
When they searched the body of the suspect, they were able to recover the amount of P5,025 from his pocket.
The suspect then identified Russel Parpan y De La Cruz as his companion in executing the crime.
He further stated that they hit the victim with a piece of guava branch several time causing her to fall prostrate on the floor, unconscious.
A certain Enciang Parpan and Clarita Dilas y Alarkon helped in bringing the victim to Saint John Hospital at Brgy San Jose, here for medical attention.
But, she was already dead, the report said.
A hot pursuit operation is underway for the immediate arrest of suspect Russel Parpan (a.k.a Bulilit), the report added.
