Police said they already determined three possible suspects on Jang Lucero’s killing in Calamba, Laguna, last week. However, they are still gathering substantial evidence before they could release the suspects’ identities.
“Dalawang lalaki po ang sumakay at isang babae. Tatlo po ang sumakay sa kanyang sasakyan,” Police Lieutenant Colonel Gene Licud, chief of the Calamba Police Station said.
(Two males and one female rode the victim’s car.)
Licud earlier said that Lucero and her girlfriend, Meyah Amatorio, personally knew those who were involved in the crime.
“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.
(We have seen CCTV footage that corresponds to our earlier theory that there were two men on board and one woman. There was another car which was a car we suspect was the one that dropped Jang’s riders.)
“Nu’ng lumagpas na sa intersection ‘yung sasakyan ni Jang, sumunod ‘yung kotse,” Licud said. “Tumutugma sa kotseng nagbaba sa kanilang tatlo bago sumakay.”
(As they passed the intersection, the car followed. It matched with the vehicle that dropped the three before boarding to Jang’s car.)
Police identify three possible suspects on Jang Lucero’s killing
“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.
(I’ll just emphasize: Their faces, their identities, their names, we are just solidifying our evidence to confirm that they are the suspects.)
The police official appealed to the suspects to surrender to the police because if not, they could be hurt if the authorities would arrest them, said Licud.
He added they are preparing their evidence against the three persons allegedly involved in the stabbing.
“May hinahanda pa tayong katibayan bago natin sila tawaging suspect,” the police official clarified.
(We are still preparing evidence before we can call them suspects.)
“Kilala na po namin sila pero nangangalap po kami ng mas matibay pang mga ebidensiya,” he added.
(We already know them, but we gather more substantial evidence.)
Licud added that they are waiting for SOCO for further information about fingerprints found inside Lucero’s car.
