The suspected mastermind behind the kidnapping and murder of two Chinese traders in the northern Philippine province of Isabela surrendered to local police, a police officer said on Monday.

Cagayan Valley police head Chief Supt. Francisco Villaroman said Monday that Jay Lord A. Dimal, who turned himself in on Sunday, admitted to the kidnapping and murder of Pan Xinyi, also known as Lucio Pua, his wife Pan Juhua alias Rosemarie Pua, and Gemma Eugenio, all residents of Alicia, Isabela and engaged in rice trading business.

Dimal, accompanied by his father Carlos and a lawyer, admitted to Villaroman that he plotted the kidnapping and killing of the three.

The three victims were kidnapped on Sept. 6. They were killed a few hours after they were snatched. Their bodies were dismembered and disposed in different places in Isabela and Quirino provinces.

Eduardo Sapipi, one of the abductors, bothered by his conscience, went to the police to reveal what happened. Sapipi named Dimal as the one who contracted them for a fee. His information was supported by another cohort-turned-witness Ernesto Billador.

Dimal is facing murder and kidnapping charges.
