Jang Lucero murder case update: Girlfriend personally knows possible suspects

case update: A police official said that Jang Lucero and her girlfriend personally know the possible suspects involved in the Laguna lady driver’s brutal killing last week.

“Kilalalang kilala niya [she really knows them],” Police Lieutenant Colonel Gene Licud, chief of the Calamba Police Station, said in an interview on Dobol B sa News TV.

When asked if Lucero’s girlfriend also knew the persons involved, Lucid replied, “Kilala din po [she also knows them].”

The official also said they already identified the three persons seen on CCTV footage who met with Jang Lucero at a fast-food restaurant and boarded her car.

Initial investigations revealed Lucero sidelined as a “transporter” after she lost her job due to the pandemic. It was reported that she transported three passengers from Calamba to Gil Puyat, Makati. She was found dead with 52 stab wounds inside her car on Bypass Road in Calamba.

According to Jang’s girlfriend, Meyah Amatorio, the victim told her Sunday night that she would transport three passengers from Laguna to Gil Puyat in Metro Manila.

After a few hours, Meyah said she repeatedly called Jang’s cellphone, but the victim was not answering until she decided to call the police. There they were asked to go to the police and station and informed of what happened to Jang.

“Dalawang lalaki po ang sumakay at isang babae. Tatlo po ang sumakay sa kanyang sasakyan,” Licud said.

“May nakita po kaming CCTV footage na tumutugma doon sa sa ating theory noong una na may dalawang lalaking sumakay at isang babae. May kasunod pang isang sasakyan na isang kotse na hinihinala namin na ito ang nagbaba sa mga sumakay sa sasakyan ni Jang,” he said.

“Nu’ng lumagpas na sa intersection ‘yung sasakyan ni Jang, sumunod ‘yung kotse,” Licud said. “Tumutugma sa kotseng nagbaba sa kanilang tatlo bago sumakay.”

“Bibigyan ko lang ng diin: Ang mga mukha ng mga ‘yan, ang kanilang pagkatao, mga pangalan, dinadagdagan pa lamang ang aming ebidensiya para masabi na sila na nga ‘yan,” he said.

Licud appealed to the suspects to surrender to the police.

“Panawagan namin mula sa Calamba Police, mas maganda po na sumuko na lamang sila. Huwag nang hintayin na kami ang kukuha sa kanila dahil baka masaktan sila,” he said.
