Watch Reynaldo Dagsa,  Filipino Official, Caught His Own Murder Suspect On Camera

Philippines city councilman Reynaldo Dagsa was shot dead on New Year's Eve while he was celebrating with his family. But, dead Councilman Reynaldo Dagsa has helped the police to catch his own killer. No its not what you think it is he did not came back as a ghost to name his killer, instead, Dagsa was taking a picture of his celebrating family when he was shot and in the picture is the killer himself.

The photo which Dagsa took clearly shows a man with a gun aiming at Dagsa behind his family. The face of the killer is partially covered by the gun but the photo is good enough.

Philippines Police have caught two suspects based on the image, one they say is the shooter and the other is a lookout, who can also be seen in the picture. The Police say that the main suspect behind the killing is a car thief who was ordered to be arrested last year.
