    A massive manhunt was launched for a killer who stabbed to death 3 people (2nurses and 1 nursing student) in their house where he was hired as a construction worker and who also robbed the victims’ cash and several iPads.

    This happened in Caloocan last Sunday but
    the criminal is said to have fled somewhere here in the Visayas. I am sharing the news with the criminal’s photo. If the link does not show, you may read the details from the newspaper called Philstar.

    Details are in the story below.

    One of my eternal questions is why there is so little follow up by the press on resolutions of murder cases. In this case they know who it is and have a photo. For instance the the Printze (sp?) fellow who was beaten to death down by the boulevard. I would like to know the disposition of the four assailants. Anyone know a way to find out?

    It is true. Nothing always comes out of every investigation. Do authorities reach a blank wall every time? Or is there a need for dedicated and driven investigators to pursue each case without stop until we make real arrests of those guilty criminals?

    Something is wrong with the way criminal investigations are conducted in my country.

    Not true. Just because the press does not report the outcomes of judicial proceedings does not mean that nothing always comes out of every investigation. Many cases are solved without the people knowing because the press does not report it.

    The low cost FaceBook press does not have the resources to publish the details of judicial proceedings and every arrest.

    I hope we’re on the same page, sir. We’re talking about the Phil. judicial system which badly needs a makeover considering the thousands of cases unresolved everyday.

    Take the series of shootings in this province as an instance. NOT ONE arrest has been made yet on the killers of the slain broadcasters, lawyers, doctors, ordinary citizens since these crazy shootings started. Media is not publishing anything ‘coz there is nothing to publish in the first place. Authorities here are too slack when it comes to problems like this. Our laws lack teeth and bones to discourage people from committing crimes. There is a problem in how crimes are handled by authorities in this country.

    I think that this entire thing (unsolved crime in the Philippines) is more of a confrontation between reality and a public that watches (mostly american) tv-shows that totally unrealistic depict crime solving in a 40 minute episode by detective teams equipped with every modern technology one can think of.
    It is even less realistic to expect police in a developing nation to have sophisticated detective teams all around the country to deal with serious crime.

    Yes, more resources should be made available for crime solving even in this country, but expecting results quickly would even then be unrealistic.

    Just as an example, a heinous crime in the Netherlands in 1998 where a pedophile allegedly raped and killed a young boy is only now leading to court proceedings, 22 years after. This alleged perpetrator has been at or very near the top of the "unsolved crimes" list of the police for 20 years or so, until finally the biggest DNA investigation ever in the country delivered first a relative of the suspect and then a suspect. I'm not saying this is a representative example, just illustrating that even having dozens of detectives/investigators on a case doesn't necessarily lead to quick results (and sometimes not to results at all).

    If ever they reach the courts most often they are junked for lack of evidence even with very concrete proofs, they seem to always find loopholes and the cases get trashed, relieving the dockets of clogged cases.

    Are you sure about that? What are the conviction rates in the Philippines for violent crimes?

    Getting acquitted is not the same here as in other countries. It is very common to get acquitted of a crime and then be killed by a motorcycle assassin two weeks later. Seems to be the way the locals reduce the cost of imprisoning criminals.

    Whe
    When I came in country the DAP scandal was in full swing. I noted the riding in tandem murders and scoured the internet for a murder solution rate. I finally found an article that seemed reputable that quoted a 23% murder solution rate. Since than the murder rate went from 9.5% to 11.5%, so the solution rate probably went down. If only 20% of the murders are solved, it's open season I would think.
