Live Crime Story! And It's Not Fiction!
A reward of P100,000 has been offered for the arrest of Mark Dizon, a computer technician tagged in the killing of a retired US air force and three other foreigners.
Senior Superintendent Danilo Bautista, Angeles City police director, yesterday said that the reward money was offered by the Angeles City business community.
Bautista said that businessmen were alarmed over the series of robberies and killings in Angeles City, which was why they offered a cash reward for the arrest of Mark Dizon, 28.
He said all the victims of Dizon were robbed of gadgets particularly laptops, cameras and cellular phones.
On July 12, the bodies of Geoffrey Allan Bennun and his live-in partner, Abegail Helina, were found in a state of decomposition in their house at Oasis Hotel and Villas in Clarkville Compound in Barangay Anunas.
They were robbed of a laptop, camera and cellular phone.
On July 16, James Bolton Porter, 51, a Briton and his live-in partner, Melissa Madarang, 22, were also found dead with gunshot wounds in their body at their residence at Sta. Maria Subdivision in Barangay Balibago, Angeles City.
And on July 22, US Air Force M/Sgt. Albert Mitchell, his wife Janet Andrenada, 53, and their house helpers Isabel Fajardo, Marissa Prado and Boy Vergara were found dead at Hensonville Court Subdivision in Barangay Malabanias, Angeles City.
Shells found in all the crime scenes indicated that they were killed using the same 9 mm pistol, said Bautista.
He said that the pistol was not registered under the name of Dizon.
A warrant of arrest against Dizon and Edgar Bognot dated Jan. 13, 2005 for robbery and carnapping was served by Angeles City police. Bognot was arrested on June 9, 2005, however, the case was dismissed due to non-appearance of complainant while the case against Dizon was achieved.
He said that the Angeles City police yesterday filed charges in court, robbery with homicide against Dizon who is now reportedly hiding somewhere in Tarlac.
