BAGUIO CITY – The missing head of the beheaded body of a 49-year old government driver was recovered by concerned residents of Castillo Village, Kayapa, Nueva Vizcaya early Wednesday morning.
Kayapa police operatives claimed concerned residents reported to the local police force the recovered head of a person that was placed inside en eco bag with a cartoon placed inside that had the words “Pusher Ako, Kayo Na Ang Susunod.”
Earlier, relatives of Alberto Sabado Juquiana, 49, married, driver of the City Parks Management Office and a resident of Bronze Street, Upper Quezon Hill, Baguio City found his lifeless and beheaded body on a squat position inside their residence.
It was learned that his relatives from La Union came up to the city to look after him upon the request of his mother who was abroad considering that she was not able to get in touch with him over the past several days despite repeated calls on his mobile phone.
Probers recovered from inside the victim’s residence two sachets containing suspected shabu, various lighters and assorted drug paraphernalia but his relatives denied his involvement in the use of illegal drugs or even in the sale of the prohibited substances.
The victim’s relatives allowed his remains to undergo the required autopsy to ascertain whether or not he was under the influence of drugs at the time of the incident.
His relatives asserted that the slain driver was a responsible person and that those who brutally murdered him were the ones involved in the use of the illegal drugs.
The recovered head was formally turned over to the victim’s family late Thursday afternoon after his parents confirmed that the head found in Kayappa, Nueva Vizcaya was the one belonging to his son.
The suspects are now the subject of a manhunt by the police to ascertain the motive behind the driver’s brutal murder.
Juquiana was previously a member of the CEPMO’s roadside inspection, testing and monitoring action team before he was assigned at the Baguio sewerage treatment plant as a driver.
