SORSOGON CITY, 17May2016 – Police authorities Monday evening found the body of the missing high school principal in a canal at Bacon District, this city.
The body was discovered after police apprehended 5 suspects, all minors, and revealed that they dumped the body of Christian de los Angeles, the missing high school principal, in a canal at Sitio Gabao, Barangay San Roque.
A follow up operation Monday night by city police found the body in advanced state of decomposition.
Police authorities were looking for the chop-chop, or modified motorcycle of the victim as important lead in solving the case, and the lawmen discovered the suspects were using the motorcycle.
The body of the victim will undergo autopsy. Police is now conducting follow-up investigation of the case.
De los Angeles was reported missing by his parents last May 4, but search for the missing principal had remained unsolved, which had triggered wild speculation in the city.
The principal’s parents officially reported him missing to the police, prompting the city law enforcement unit to launch a manhunt and dig out more leads in solving the case. The police manhunt led to the apprehension of the suspects Monday evening.
