Rhoderick Armamento said Christian Reyes Jucal
, 36, was arrested after he sold a sachet of crystal meth or 'shabu' (methamphetamine hydrochloride) to an undercover policeman in Barangay Ibabang Dupay in Lucena City at 2:25 a.
In his own little way, Frederick Jucal helped Rodrigo Duterte win the presidency, campaigning for the then Davao City mayor by wearing a T-shirt that bears his candidate's portrait.
One afternoon in December last year, a masked man shot the 35-year-old Jucal and his childhood friend Norman 'Oman' Esquillo, 36, outside Jucal's house in Barangay Burol, Mandaluyong City.
Jucal's loved ones, Barangay Burol officials, and a sibling of Esquillo agree that Jucal - a volunteer fireman and electrician by trade; a quiet man who 'hated drugs,' liked aquarium fish and kept a pet snake, and a father of four - was just a victim of mistaken identity.
Yet as early 2013, Jucal was convinced Duterte should be the next President.
She showed the Inquirer the 'Du30' T-shirt that Jucal personally designed.
And so Jucal was over the moon the day Duterte won as the country's 16th President.
14, Jucal was tinkering with his motorbike outside his house, with Esquillo seated next to him, when the masked gunman came, shooting Jucal first before turning to his friend.
Witnesses heard Jucal pleading for his life but the killer kept shooting.
Two days prior to his death, Jucal offered Esquillo a job, Cuenco said.
Investigator PO1 Noli Jucal said the CCTV footage was not that clear enough to identify the suspect, although it could stand as circumstantial evidence.
Although we did not see in the video the actual taking of the valuables, the mere fact he was the only person seen at the area," made Juan a probable suspect, Jucal said.
