The suspect, who killed a woman inside a motel in Cebu, surrendered to Bohol police on Friday morning, May 6.

Sierra Bullones Police Station said Carlo Virador, 40, went home to Barangay Bugsoc in Sierra Bullones town after he allegedly killed Maryjane Alia, 36, a swertres teller from San Fernando, Cebu.

Virador admitted to police he killed Alia when he accidentally read text messages in her phone from another man.

Initial reports from Carcar City Police revealed that Alia was with a male companion shortly before her corpse was discovered. They also believed she may have died due to strangulation.

Citing testimonies from the hotel staff and security guards, investigators said the woman checked in at Room No. 19 around 8:30 on Thursday, May 4.

Shortly after she checked in, a man joined her in the room.

A few hours later, one of the security guards heard a woman screaming for help from Room No. 19, prompting him to check the room.

But the man told the security that it was fine.

The man, according to the motel staff, went out of the room around 11:30 a.m. and told them that he will just be getting lunch.

The then unidentified male companion, however, did not return.

Motel staff went to check Room No. 19 past 12 noon, to ask the woman whether she will be extending her stay or not.

When there was no response from the woman, the staff sought help from another security guard. They opened the room, only to find the woman’s lifeless body.
