(UPDATE No. 4, 8:10 p.m., November 1) ABS-CBNnews.com, citing ANC's Headstart, Parañaque police chief Senior Superintendent Billy Beltran revealed that Ramon Joseph "RJ" Bautista, 18, was arrested after being identified as one of the suspects in the killing of his brother Ram Revilla. ( An earlier version of the cited ABS-CBNNews.com story reported that RJ is 22 years old. The corrected version that now appears on the ABS-CBNNews.com website says he is actually only 18 years old.)
Beltran said that RJ was arrested after a witness claimed that RJ took part in planning of Ram’s murder. The Revilla family has been informed about RJ’s arrest.
Aside from RJ, two other suspects Michael Cruz Altia and Roy Francis Tolisora, who are the alleged hired killers, are already in police custody.
PEP.ph reports that Ram’s case has gotten even more complicated. As of this afternoon, police have also tagged Ram’s sister Ramona (Other reports refer to her as "Maria Ramona Belen.") as a suspect. The report did not say what led the police to think that she is one of the culprits in Ram’s murder.
Meanwhile, an Inquirer.net story alleges that Ram and RJ had a "disagreement over a P1-million monthly allowance from their father, former Senator Ramon Revilla Sr." The said the amount was allegedly for the nine siblings and did not include the allowance for their mother, Genelyn Magsaysay (Other reports spell her first name as "Jennylyn."). Ram, the eldest of the brood, reportedly handled the money.
According to a TV Patrol report, Ramona is the second child, while RJ is the sixth child of the Revilla patriarch and Magsaysay.
