CAMP OLIVAS---Police authorities here said the YTG task force will still pursue the investigation on the murder case of Florencio "Jack" Yap, Rene Tetangco and Dennis Guinto.

Central Luzon Police Director Alan LM Purisima said he has ordered the YTG task force which was headed by Senior Superintendent Wendy Rosario to gather more evidences on the slaying of the three persons.

"Mahigpit ang bilin sa akin ng higher-ups na bigyan ko ng atensyon ang murder case nina Yap, Tetangco at Guinto" (Higher-ups gave me an order to give more attention on the murder of Yap , Tetangco and Guinto), Purisima said in an interview.

He said he has ordered the YTG task force to further collate statements from witnesses and convert them to evidences.

"Hindi namin hihintuan ang kaso ng YTG hangga't hindi ito mareresolba" (We will not stop on case until it will be resolved), Purisima said.

Purisima said when he was still the deputy chief of Directorate for Investigation and Detection Management (DIBM), he was the one who followed up the sensational triple murder case.

"And now that I am the Central Luzon police director, I will do everything to solve the triple murder case," he said.

Purisima said the task force who tagged the alleged gunman of the trio, a former Civilian Geographical Auxiliary Unit (CAFGU) is still unclear.

On June 3 this year, Yap, Tetangco and Guinto were found dead inside a Ford Expedition car parked abandoned in a vacant lot along Friendship Avenue, Barangay Pampang, Angeles City.

A security guard identified as Joseph Maderaso, detailed at the Barvaria Lions Restaurant along Friendship Avenue found the trio already dead inside the SUV owned by Yap.

The victims sustained gunshot wounds on the different parts of their body from an M-16 rifle.

Rene Tetangco is the brother of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Governor Amado Tetangco.

Last July 5, task force YTG has raised the cash reward for any information that could lead to the solution of the triple murder case.

From P400,000, the cash reward was raised to P 1 million in order to attract more witnesses to come out and give a strong lead to solve the case.

When the cash reward was offered, the task force has been receiving text messages regarding some information. (Ric Sapnu)
