A MAN, who allegedly killed his mother a year ago, was arrested yesterday morning in Barangay Pasil, Cebu City.

Eldrid Torreliza’s arrest was authorized by a warrant issued by Judge Marivic Dapay of the Bohol Tiral Court Branch 52.

“An informant told us that a man, who has a pending warrant of arrest, has been hiding in Cebu City. So we conducted a surveillance last week,” said Insp. Aileen Recla of the Cebu City Police Office’s (CCPO) Investigation and Detection Management Branch (IDMB).

Recla said Torreliza, 33, allegedly chopped his mother, placed her remains in a sack and threw them away.


Torreliza denied that he killed his mother, Leonila, 62, in Getafe, Bohol. But he admitted that he is a drug user.

“Dili ko na mabuhat sa akong mama kay mao gud nay gapaskwela nako (I cannot do that to my mother. She sent me to school),” he said.

Using the electronic blotter (E-blotter), the IDMB was able to trace the warrant for Torreliza’s arrest.

The E-blotter is a feature on the PNP website. It is a repository of cases, warrants and blotters of police stations in the country. Only the PNP can access it using a username and password.


Recla said that was the first time they use the E-blotter and found it to be useful and easy to use.

She said that the PNP in Central Visayas started using it since January this year.

Recla said that since the case was in Bohol, they will forward Torreliza to the Bohol Police. The suspect is still detained at the CCPO stockade.
