MABALACAT, Pampanga, Philippines—The head of a call center agent murdered in a motel room in Angeles City last week was found beside a creek in Sta. Inez village here on Saturday.
Senior Superintendent Danilo Bautista, Angeles police director, said the head of Katrina Gantan, 22, who worked at the Sutherland Global Services Philippines inside the Clark Freeport, was found by residents inside a sack left under the Morales Bridge.
Bautista said residents noticed the stench coming from the sack teeming with flies at a grassy portion of the bank of the Sapang Balen creek at 11:20 a.m. When they opened the sack, they were shocked to see a woman's head inside.
On October 4, policemen arrested Adonis Reyes, 30, Gantan's boyfriend and co-worker for his alleged involvement in the murder. Employees of Miyabe Court in Angeles said Reyes matched the description of Gantan's companion when they checked into the motel on the night of October 1. Gantan was found headless and naked inside a toilet in the motel the following day.
Gantan's parents said the artist's sketch provided by the police resembled Reyes' features. Reyes, however, denied involvement in Gantan's murder.
