MANILA, Philippines, Nov 21, (Agencies): Hair strands found inside a red vehicle, believed to be connected to the disposal of a bloodied body in Batangas, have been confirmed to match the DNA samples provided by the parents of beauty pageant contestant Catherine Camilon, according to a Philippine National Police (PNP) official on Tuesday, Nov 21.
Col Jean Fajardo, PNP spokesperson, revealed that the information regarding the DNA test results was conveyed during a meeting with the PNP-Forensics Group. Fajardo described this development as positive, especially considering the accounts of two witnesses who reported seeing a body being transferred from a Nissan Juke to a red Honda CRV.
“The positive match on the DNA profile of the parents of the missing victim means that the victim at least boarded that vehicle,” Fajardo stated.
The Nissan Juke, driven by Camilon before her disappearance last month, is a key part of the investigation. The red Honda CRV was discovered on a road leading to Bauan, Batangas. Along with the hair strands, the police found bloodstains inside, aligning with the statements of witnesses who saw three individuals transferring a bloodied body into the vehicle.
Fajardo identified one of the three men as the personal driver of Police Maj Alan de Castro, who, along with three others, faces charges of kidnapping and serious illegal detention related to Camilon’s disappearance. Despite the charges, the police are still treating Camilon as a missing person. De Castro has admitted to having an illicit affair with Camilon, and authorities revealed that she was a victim of physical abuse and had expressed intentions to end the relationship with the police official before her disappearance.
