In the aftermath of that discovery four men were arrested including Plutarco Antonio Ruiz who was the boyfriend of Sofia Trinidad.
BBC further reports that according to to General Ramon Sabillon, the National Police director, Plutarco Antonio Ruiz confessed to killing the women and he revealed to the police authorities where the bodies were buried.
