CAMP OLIVAS, City of Fernando Pampanga – Two men were arrested after the body of a missing person was found buried in a shallow pit in Concepcion, Tarlac.

Authorities identified the victim as Jesterson Camero, 30, of West Grace Park, Caloocan City, who was reported missing on August 13.

Through a follow-up investigation, members of the West Grace Park Sub-Station 3, arrested a suspect in front of the Nice Hotel in Barangay 78, Caloocan City.

The captured suspect revealed his cohort, who surrendered voluntarily to the police.

Upon questioning, the two suspects admitted they buried Jesterson in a shallow, grassy area in Bgy. Sta. Rosa, Concepcion, Tarlac.

This prompted the Caloocan Police to coordinate with Concepcion Police and they proceeded to the area and confirmed a body was indeed buried in a shallow pit covered with cement.

Recovered in the area were IDs, a sling bag, a luggage bag, socks, a pillow believed to be owned by the victim, three pails with dried cement, a shovel, car mattings, and a large cardboard box.

The suspects are now facing robbery with homicide charges before the Caloocan City Prosecutor’s Office.
