SAN CARLOS CITY, Pangasinan — A policeman was arrested here for allegedly killing a 23-year-old woman who works at the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office.
San Carlos City chief of police Lt. Col. Franklin Ortiz identified the suspect as Tranquilino Sanchez Germono of Urbiztondo town, a patrolman at the Pangasinan 1st Provincial Mobile Force Company in Alaminos City.
Authorities tracked Germono through a closed-circuit television footage showing him back-riding on motorcycle with the victim towards Barangay Cacaritan, where the victim’s body was found later.
Gunshots were heard by residents of the sitio on 7 July and saw the victim dead on the road with two gunshot wounds in the head.
The victim was later identified as Renalyn Soriano Aquino of Barangay Baybay Lopez in Binmaley town.
The police recovered two empty caliber 9mm shells in the crime scene.
“His motive for killing his lover is still unclear, and is still being investigated,” Ortiz said.
