The suspect in the murder of a woman, whose body was found stuffed in a box inside a house in Lapu-Lapu City, surrendered to the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group Central Visayas (CIDG-7) on Tuesday.

Emidelio Salvador, the son of the owner of the boarding house where the victim stayed, said he surrendered to clear his name.

Salvador of Oprra, Barangay Kalunasan, Cebu City, said he had no participation to the crime and he claimed that he was only told to dispose the body of Merymie Caburnay.

He named three of his cohorts as the people who killed the female boarder.

Police, however, withheld the name because of the ongoing operations against them.

The jeepney driver, who drove the vehicle carrying the box where the body was stuffed, said in an interview that Salvador approached him last Friday and rented his jeepney to deliver a box containing speakers, which they will use during the Barili fiesta.

The driver said he didn’t know that the box contained Caburnay’s body.

He said he drove Salvador and another man heading to Barili.

But when they reached Banawa, Salvador’s companion, asked him to stop the vehicle, and paid him P300 to get off the vehicle.

The man then drove the vehicle with Salvador as his passenger.

Yesterday, the driver positively identified Salvador at the CIDG office.

Police are pursuing the other suspects in the killing of Caburnay.
