Brilliant Sleuthing Leads to Arrest of Briton


CABANATUAN CITY -- Brilliant detective work played a big role in serving justice to parties involved in a case that spanned two continents (Europe and Asia).

Kriss McCord, 50, an Englishman who is a fugitive from justice for having been convicted on three counts of rape and four counts of indecent assault, had been tracked down by detectives of the Nueva Ecija police provincial office to a remote place in the province.

Police agents had been dispatched to various areas in the province to look for "any alien-looking person" or "Caucasian personality."

In the days that followed, Supt. Roel Obusan, chief of the provincial police intelligence and investigation bureau (PIIB) and his men sifted information on foreigners seen by people.

They finally hit paydirt when they received information that a "likely suspect" was seen in Barangay General Ricarte, Llanera, Nueva Ecija.

The subject, a British national, was said to have arrived in the village about 18 months ago and have lived with a woman at 269 Block 6, Barangay General Ricarte.

Subsequent investigation showed that McCord had been living in with a widow, Asuncion Booth or Shona Booth.

Immigration records show that McCord came to the Philippines about one-and-half years ago.
