GENERAL SANTOS CITY --- The now detained 50-year-old carpenter who sexually molested and killed a five-year-old girl here Saturday has 12 rape cases long pending in different courts.

Edmar Muyco Senador, arrested about three hours after he raped and killed a child in a secluded spot in Barangay Apopong here at about dusk Saturday, readily confessed his brutal offense to police probers.

The parents and siblings of the slain child told reporters they noticed the victim missing before nightfall Saturday.

They found her cadaver three hours later right at the spot where she was molested and strangled to death.

Barangay officials and personnel of the General Santos City Police Office immediately chased and apprehended Senador after villagers reported seeing him walk away from the crime scene, acting strangely.

Relatives of the victim told reporters they want Senador prosecuted immediately to the fullest extent of law.  

Col. Paul Bometivo, General Santos City Police Director, said he is thankful to the witnesses and barangay officials who helped them locate Senador after the incident.

Senior city police officials told reporters Monday probers interrogating Senador have found out that he was long wanted for a dozen rape cases pending in different courts.

Senador was said to have moved from one barangay to another in General Santos City and in nearby towns in Sarangani province to avoid detection.

Brig. Gen. Alexander Tagum, director of the Police Regional Office-12, said Monday he has directed the city police to immediately file a new rape case against Senador.

Tagum said he has instructed investigators to enlist the help of barangay officials and witnesses in building an airtight case against Senador in connection with his having raped and killed a five-year-old child last Saturday. (John Unson)
