Forensic evidence related to Tarlac police killing being gathered

Police are continuing to gather evidence regarding the ambush in Capas, Tarlac, Tuesday morning.

Col. Renante Cabico, provincial director of the Tarlac Police Provincial Office, suspects that the culprits who killed Staff Sergeant Mike Maun are possibly not from the area.

“Dito po sa Tarlac, wala na kaming criminal gang na gumawa nito. Kaya sa tingin namin, nakakatutok kami sa investigation, na ang mga grupong yun ay galing labas po,” said Cabico.

In an interview with TeleRadyo Wednesday morning, Cabico said they are waiting for forensic evidence to help identify the culprits.

“Sa ngayon po, may tinututukan na kaming anggulo. Pero sa ngayon po, kulang pa kami sa other evidence o lead. Although, hinihintay po namin ang forensic evidence na aming ni-request, like yung enhancement nung video at yung mga fingerprint na nakuha sa getaway vehicle na inabandona ng mga suspek,” said Cabico.

CCTV of Barangay Cristo Rey captured the murder of the 36-year-old member of the PNP Aviation Group assigned to Clark International Airport.

“Nakikipag-coordinate po kami sa kaniyang unit at sa kaniyang nakakasama sa duty, kung may nababanggit. May nabanggit sa akin, pero subject for confirmation, na prior nito, may mga naghahanap sa kaniya doon sa kanyang duty station. But still, kailangang pa po namin ng corroborating evidence para ma-confirm yung ganung balita,” said Cabico.

In the video, a black car can be seen blocking the victim’s vehicle. Two armed men immediately got out of the car and indiscriminately fired bullets at the victim’s vehicle.

The suspects abandoned the used car in Sitio Baloy, Barangay Arangonen in the said town.

He also said that the license plate affixed to the vehicle did not match the one registered with the Land Transportation Office.

“Yun po ang subject for follow-up po. Yung ginamit na plate number ng mga suspek, nakarehistro ito sa isang Vios. Nagmamay-ari po, isang babae na residente ng , Pampanga,” said Cabico.

Cabico promised that they would do everything to identify the culprits and resolve the case.
