Interaksyon.com reports that fugitive Anamarie Livrando, the maid who was dubbed as "Poison Ivy" because she had poisoned people in the households where she was employed before she robbed them, was arrested in Zamboanga City on Tuesday, January 17. Police records show that Livrando had victimized 10 Filipino-Chinese families in Manila and Quezon City. Her victims suffered severe reactions to poisoning, but they all survived the ordeal.
It also appears that Livrando is an escape artist.
Interaksyon.com revealed that Livrando, who was first arrested on August 22, 2008 by Manila police, escaped from the Manila City Jail on February 28, 2009. The report went on to disclose: "She was (arrested again) on April 7, 2011 by Quezon City policemen. However, on November 19 , 2011, Livrando once again escaped from the Correctional Institution for Women (CIW) in Mandaluyong City, where she was serving a sentence for multiple frustrated homicide and robbery." (Note: The report didn’t explain why or how she ended up in the Mandaluyong City facility.)
The report quoted Zamboanga City police chief Senior Superintendent Edwin de Ocampo said Livrando was arrested around 10 a.m. at a bus terminal. She was reportedly going to Cagayan de Oro City. The Interaksyon.com report added that Livrando had arrived in Zamboanga City using the name Kevin Kylie Deniega Canabano sometime in December 2011. At the time, Livrando allegedly had a "foreign fiance" (whom she refused to name) who wanted to "apply for a passport from the Department of Foreign Affairs' consular office." The report did not say if Livrando was still in touch with her alleged "foreign fiance."
