Carlo Cadampog Suspect In Iraseth Pharma CEO Eduardo Tolosa Jr's Murder Case

Suspects burned pharma CEO’s body for three days. According to the police Anti-Kidnapping Group's investigation, the perpetrators of the murder of Eduardo Tolosa Jr., CEO of Iraseth Pharma Inc., did this to his body in order to hide their tracks (AKG).

One of the five suspects who turned themselves in to the Philippine National Police, according to Col. Jean Fajardo, claimed they burned Tolosa's body upon their mastermind leader Carlo Cadampog's orders.

In an interview, Fajardo claimed,

Halos tatlong araw sinunog 'yung bangkay pagkatapos patayin.

Translation: They burned the corpse for almost three days after killing him.

For this reason, the PNP Forensic Group was unable to get DNA profiles from what seemed to be human skeletal remains found in Barangay San Juan.

According to Fajardo, Cadampog is a card dealer at a casinoand is also from Barangay San Juan. Cadampog, his brother Ceasar, Adrian Joseph Mendez, Richmeld Ignilan, David Gundran, John Benedict Dumalanta, Melvin Andes, Melchor Andes, Victor Ferrer, a certain Tomtom, and a still-unidentified guy were all named in criminal complaints made by the AKG to the Department of Justice.

The suspects, including the 13-year-old, were young people, according to Fajardo. She claimed that they revealed to the police how the main suspect found them.

She claimed that the suspects' accounts of their capture were unambiguous. They described how they cleared the scene of the crime and prepared a grave for the victim. According to Fajardo, the suspects reported the incident to their parents out of fear, and those parents forced them to contact the police.

The deceased victim's body was laid to rest on July 19. However, the main suspect gave the other suspects the order to burn the victim. The remains were burned over the course of three days, one of the suspects claimed.

Fajardo claimed that as a result, only a few fragments of bones were found among the cremated remains. They had no more DNA taken from them. Fajardo claimed that Tolosa was acquainted with the victims.

They played basketball together and were neighbors. She stated that as early as May, the main suspect was talking to people about his scheme to harm the victim.

Melvin and Melchor Andes, Dumalanta, Gundran, and Ferrer are among the suspects under the PNP's care. According to Fajardo, the five turned themselves in to the police because they lived in continual fear of Cadampog and other people who had a direct hand in the death of Tolosa.

According to PNP, five of the 11 suspects in the kidnapping and murder of the pharmaceutical executive have already turned themselves in. A 13-year-old was one of the people who handed themselves in to the police. The suspects turned themselves in on August 8 and August 11, according to PNP spokeswoman Jean Fajardo, and admitted to taking part in the crime.

May lima po tayong suspects na sumuko po voluntary surrender at ipinahayag niya nga po sa incident at based po sa kanilang mga sinumpaang salaysay,

said Fajardo.

Translation: Five suspects have willingly turned themselves in; according to their sworn declarations, they admitted to being involved in the incident.

The five are willing to testify in court since they stated that their only involvement with Tolosa's death was burning it, not actually killing him. Fajardo says that one of the suspects they had in custody told the police that Cadampog tried to kill Tolosa with a revolver before asking for a knife.

The five weren't there when the murder took place. They assume that a knife was used, Fajardo said, adding, "Ang presumption nila ay kutsilyo ang ginamit."

Tolosa was last seen drivinga Toyota Land Cruiser on July 19, when he picked up P5.7 million in cash and two expensive watches from his personal assistant in Bonifacio GlobalCity in Taguig.

Later, his burned-out car was discovered in San Luis, Pampanga. The AKG said that in order to secure Tolosa's release, Cadampog's organization sought P100,000,000 in ransom from his family.
