The three suspects were identified by several witnesses who issued sworn statements, we are still hunting down the other suspects,” he said, adding that the victim’s charred remains were not subjected to autopsy and buried immediately according to Islamic tradition.Mangudadatu said the victim was a distant relative on his mother side.
