Carl Angelo Arnaiz, the slain son of a Dubai-based OFW, tested positive for gunpowder nitrates, according to the paraffin test conducted by the Philippine National Police (PNP) Crime Laboratory on September 5.

In a spot report, National Capital Region Police Officer Director Oscar Albayalde said Arnaiz hailed a cab in Navotas City at around 3:30 A.M in August 18.

Arnaiz posed as a passenger and asked the taxi driver to drive him to 5th Avenue in Caloocan City and when they reached C3, Road 3 in Barangay 28, he declared a hold-up, according to Albayalde’s report.

“Suspect drew his gun and declared a heist and intent to gain, took the wallet of the victim, and hit the latter using his gun, causing injury then alighted,”

Albayalde added the taxi driver reported the robbery to the police. The responding police, authorities, Police Officer 1 Jeffrey Perez and Police Officer 1 Ricky Arquilita of Caloocan, came and tried to arrest Arnaiz but the teen allegedly tried to shoot which caused them to fire back.

Arnaiz was then declared missing and was only found 10 days after a funeral parlor in Caloocan saw that his friends are family are looking for him.

Public Attorney’s Office reported that Arnaiz was tortured after their forensic experts conducted an autopsy on his body and found 5 gunshot wounds three to the mid chest area, one on the left side, and one on his upper back.

There were also handcuff marks found on Arnaiz’s wrist an deep scratches, which could possibly mean that he was dragged

Son of OFW in Dubai tagged as ‘robber’, ‘drug user’; shot dead in Navotas

by  | News

Eva Magat Arnaiz, an OFW who works in a salon in Dubai for five years, went back to the Philippines to search for her 19-year old missing son, Carl Angelo “Gelo” Arnaiz.

While his father Lito Arnaiz travelled all the way from Leyte to Manila to help looking for his son.

Around 12 midnight of August 17, Gelo told his sister he was going out with friends to buy snacks; not knowing that it would be the last time she would see him alive.

On August 28, Ezekiel Funeral Home saw a post about the missing 19-year-old boy through Facebook and immediately contacted the family to confirm if the body they have was Gelo’s.

Gelo allegedly robbed a taxi driver, Tomas Bagcal, hitting the back of his head with .38 cal. Pistol then took his wallet in Navotas City around 3:20 am.

Bagcal was able to ask help from the policemen, but Gelo allegely fired forcing the police to shoot him.

Police found three plastic sachets of “shabu” and two packets of marijuana leaves along with Bagcal’s wallet inside a backpack in the scene.

Investigators now think these drugs help Gelo as antidepressants after his mother told police that he dropped out from the University of the Philippines to deal with depression.

In an interview with The Filipino Times, Lito Arnaiz denied this accusation saying his son’s only vice is smoking cigarette.

“Hindi po ‘yun gumagamit kasi may sarili siyang gamot. May regular siyang check-up tsaka may maintenance siyang gamot,” added Lito.

The family already asked help from the Commission of Human Rights and was told they will be investigating Gelo’s case.

Gelo graduated valedictorian in elementary, went to Makati Science High School, and a student of the University of the Philippines.

Caloocan cops who killed son of Dubai-based OFW removed from post

by  | News

The policemen involved in the killing of the son of a Dubai-based overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in Caloocan City were removed from their post on September 3.

Based on a report in Unang Balita on September 4, Police Officer 1 Jeffrey Perez and Police Officer 1 Ricky Aquilita were relieved of their duties and transferred to Camp Bagong Diwa.

Based on their narrative, they exchanged shots with 19-year-old Carl Angelo Arnaiz past 3:30 A.M. on August 18.

In their sworn affidavit, Arnaiz held up a taxi driver on C3 Road and took his wallet, hit him with a gun then fled the scene. The policemen saw Arnaiz walking and when they tried to talk to him, he opened fire against them that resulted into an exchange of bullets.

Tomas Bagcal, the taxi driver, positively confirmed that it was Arnaiz who held him up earlier.

The policemen also reported that marijuana and shabu were found on Arnaiz, leading to speculations that these are his way of coping with his depression.

However, the Public Attorney’s Office examinations showed that Arnaiz died from getting tortured, with his arms bearing handcuff marks and his eyes swollen. They also said that he was kneeling when he was shot several times on the chest.

His body was only found 10 days after he was declared missing in Ezekiel Funeral Home. The funeral parlor saw a Facebook post about him and contacted the family to confirm if it is Arnaiz’s body.

Arnaiz’ mother, Eva Magat, who works in Dubai for five years, came back to the country to search for his son when he was still missing.
