Friendster account leads to arrest of murder suspect

STA. ROSA CITY, Laguna - A website dedicated to social networking proved to be vital in solving a crime.

On Thursday, operatives of the National Bureau of Investigation arrested one of five suspects who allegedly shot dead four people and fatally wounded two others in San Pablo City two months ago.

Rexson Hizon, 27, was positively identified by Joey Belen, a survivor of the attack, based on pictures posted on the suspect’s Friendster account.

I wonder what kind of testimonials he has on his Friendster account...
