The fifth suspect in the murder of a woman whose body was found on South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) in Cabuyao, Laguna, surrendered to authorities Tuesday afternoon.
Police said Danilo Flores, 20, yielded to officials of Baranggay 186, Maricaban, Pasay City, around 1 p.m., according to PCP-8 commander Senior Inspector Ferdinand Duren.
Flores’ surrender came hours after three of his friends who were also tagged in the death of Clarissalyn Lizardo, 27, yielded to barangay and police officers.
The three other suspects were identified as Melvin Astorida, 18; Russel Torres, 18, cousin of the primary suspect, and Buboy Phi, 23.
The primary suspect, Alfredo Torres Jr., 32, Lizardo’s live-in partner, told police that the four men helped him in carrying the body of the woman to his red Honda car for disposal.
Torres allegedly shot Lizardo in the head out of jealousy on November 28 while the suspects and the victim were having a drinking session inside the suspect’s house at Area B Chest Clinic Compound, Saint Joan St., Barangay 186, Maricaban.
