Having sleepless nights and being bothered by his conscience made massacre suspect Jemar Carpio surrender yesterday to the police, six days after he massacred three members of a family in Isabela, Negros Occidental.
Carpio, who managed to elude police captors since the killings, said he surrendered because he could no longer stand the pressure of being hunted by the police and his conscience kept bothering him for what he did.
He was fetched yesterday by the Isabela police headed by Chief Inspector Anthony Grande at the Balogo Port in Guihulngan, Negros Oriental, after he sent surrender feelers to his parents, who immediately coordinated with the police.
The suspension order for Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella was signed yesterday by Interior and Local Government Undersecretary Austere Panadero and will be mailed to the DILG Regional Office in Iloilo, ABS CBN reported yesterday.
The Department of the Interior and Local Government regional office lawyer said, however, that it has not yet received any directive from its Central Office as of yesterday.
This was after the Sandiganbayan Fourth Division denied the motion for reconsideration filed by Puentevella and upheld its September 28 resolution ordering his preventive suspension for 90 days, in its resolution promulgated on November 4.

BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Thirty shooting incidents were reported in Dumaguete City from January to November this year, less eight incidents compared to 2014, with 38 shootings.
Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria reported on this to clarify insinuations that the peace and order situation in Dumaguete is getting worse, and that his administration is mum on the issue.
