NBI to conduct DNA test on De Guzman too
Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II said he will order the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to make a separate DNA examination on the dead body identified by the family as 14-year-old Reynaldo De Guzman.
Aguirre reacted to the announcement of the Philippine National Police (PNP) which said the body which was turned over to the family of the boy known as “Kulot” is not him based on DNA testing.
“Siguro I will ask the NBI to conduct a second DNA examination para malaman lang natin,” he said.
The parents of Kulot has not accepted the PNP findings and said that the body is their son.
The remains was found along a creek in Gapan City, Nueva Ecija last September 5 after Kulot was reported missing since August 18 in their neighborhood in Cainta, Rizal.
He was last seen alive with Kulot was last seen alive with 19-year-old University of the Philippines (UP) student Carl Angelo Arnaiz who was killed by policemen during an alleged shootout in Caloocan City also on August 18.
