Watch: Arrested 3 suspects in the murder of 26-year-old Anria “Anne” Galang Espiritu

The family Anria Galang a 26-year-old gang rape and murder victim in Calumpit, Bulacan expressed dismay over the progress of the case, as the jeepney driver tagged as the third suspect may be released.

A report on Unang Balita on Tuesday August 19, 2014 said the family fears that Elmer Joson, the jeepney driver who was arrested at the wake of Anria Espiritu, will be able to get out of jail within 36 hours since he hasn't been charged.

Charges have yet to be filed because of weak evidence, especially since the witness who can counter Joson's claims has backed out, the report said.

Two other suspects had earlier been arrested and interrogated, but they haven't been seen by the family, the Unang Balita report added.

According to a separate report on 24 Oras on Monday night, Joson and his wife attended the wake after he received news of her death, saying the victim was his passenger last Wednesday evening.

Espiritu was found dead on Thursday, naked and with multiple stab wounds.

The victim's family grew suspicious upon seeing claw marks and wounds on Joson's body when he attended the wake, the 24 Oras report said.

Supt. Ophelio Dakila Concina, chief of Calumpit police, said some wounds on the driver's body had already partially healed, while scratches on his neck were still fresh.
