Galleno, a 22-year-old graduating student made a buzz after she went missing upon entering a mall in Palawan.

More than two weeks later, remains of a woman believed to be Jovelyn were found in Purok Pulang Lupa Brgy. Sta. Lourdes.

There were identification cards recovered from the crime scene. The mother of the missing lady confirmed that they belong to her daughter.

However, there were assumptions that the body found is not Jovelyn Galleno, prompting the authorities to conduct DNA testing.

A lot of experts including Doc. Eunice Herrera, a medicolegal officer of Puerto Princesa, and Dr. Fi Atencio of the City Health Department, shared their opinion about the matter.

On the other hand, the suspects behind the killing resurfaced. In an interview, Leobert Dasmariñas alias Padung, cousin of Jovelyn, detailed how he and his accomplice identified as Jovert Valdestamon, also a cousin of Jovelyn, committed the crime.

Padung claimed he was just the lookout while Valdestamon is the “mastermind.”

Meanwhile, the DNA result of the skeletal remains found earlier believed to be Galleno has been released.

PCPT Clyde Kalyawen of RPIO PRO 4-B MIMAROPA said that the DNA test turned out to be “POSITIVE” or 99.9%.

According to Super Radyo DYSP 909Khz Palawan, the samples came from the skeletons found and the victim’s immediate family.

The result was released via PULIS @ UR SERBIS RELOADED on August 30, 2022.
