The suspect identified as Narc Tulod Delemios, alias Miko admitted to the killing but stated he did not intend to kill Gerardo Maquidato Jr., who was also kicked off from his vehicle as the carnapper sped away.

Delemios confessed: “Alam ko mahihirapan kayong mapatawad ako pero pera lang ang gusto ko sa kanya pero lumaban po siya.”

Maquidato’s wife, Brenda was inconsolable and was not having any of Delemios’ excuses. She said, “Alam ko hindi lalaban ang asawa ko. Alam ko gusto niyang bumalik sa pamilya niya. Alam ko ang iniisip niya paano siya makaaalis sa ‘yo para makauwi sa amin.”

Even, Maquidato’s mother couldn’t stop her anguish and confronted the man who killed her beloved son. She asked, “Hindi mo pinagbigyan. Bakit mo ginawa? Napakawalang puso mo, masahol ka pa sa hayop.”

“Napakasipag niya. Parang hayop ang ginawa mo sa kanya. Pagsisisihan mo nang habambuhay ang ginawa mo,” the very emotional mother cried.

Meanwhile, the PNP recovered Maquidato's car in Tarlac.

Chief Dela Rosa already suggested that Delemios be subjected to a drug test.

Delemios was arrested on Tuesday, November 7 at his home in Pasay City. The key to the arrest was when his lived-in partner went and confessed to the authorities that her phone was used to book the slain Grab driver.

It was also found out that Delemios has a standing arrest warrant for a homicide back in 2015. Delemios killed a certain Gino Balbuena after a petty fight during a basketball game. The relatives of Balbuena also presented themselves to the Pasay City Police to testify.
