MANILA, Philippines – Police are hunting down three more suspects in the killing of part-time ABS-CBN talent Julie Anne Rodelas.

The Quezon City Police District-Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit (QCPD-CIDU) are now conducting follow-up operations after arresting suspects Altea Altamirano and Fernando Quiambao Jr. in Apalit, Pampanga on Saturday.

Chief Inspector Rodelio Marcelo, QCPD-CIDU head, said they are looking for three more people involved in the abduction and murder of 20-year-old Rodelas.

He said they got a big break on the case with the apprehension of Altamirano and Quiambao.

Altamirano was allegedly the one who reported Rodelas’ abduction near the World Trade Center last Tuesday.

Rodelas’ body was later found in Murphy, Cubao. The victim had gunshot wounds to the head and chest. – With a report from Eric Dastas, dzMM
