A Filipino fugitive listed among the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Ten Most Wanted in the United States has been captured on Sunday, May 29.
Philip Patrick Policarpio, wanted for the murder of his pregnane girlfriend Lauren Olguin, and her unborn child on April 12. Policarpio was arrested as he attempted to cross the United States from Tijuana, Mexico through the San Ysidro Port of Entry.
He was on parole for a 2011 felony conviction and prior to his trial for the said crime, Policarpio fled to the Philippines, where he was arrested and sent back to the United States. He was then prosecuted and ultimately convicted.
According to reports, Policarpio was angered with Olguin in a party at Los Angeles’ Rampart area. He beat her in the face and then allegedly shot her in the head in front of partygoers. Olguin died instantly.
The FBI added Policarpio to its most wanted list earlier this month. A $100,000 reward was being offered for information leading directly to his arrest.
