The 18-year-old younger brother of Ram–Ramon Joseph Bautista–was arrested at 2 a.m. yesterday, November 1, according to Parañaque police chief Senior Superintendent Billy Beltran. Ram’s 20-year-old sister Maria Ramona, on the other hand, reportedly conspired with RJ, pretending to have been kidnapped as quoted by star witness Ruel Puzon. The two are currently under police custody.
Beltran also reported that the alleged hired killers, Michael Cruz Altia and Roy Francis Tolisora, who reportedly wore Halloween masks in killing Ram Revilla, got arrested on Monday. Three other suspects remain at large and operations are ongoing to capture them.
The Revilla clan did not issue any statement regarding the development of the case. Ram’s half-brother Sen. Bong Revilla, on the other hand, announced a bounty of half a million pesos for anyone who can give a lead to solve the said murder case.
