A nearly four-month hunt  for the suspect in the gruesome murder and beheading of an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) back in May at Al Warqa, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, has ended.

Authorities arrested Glin Ambro, the suspect behind the mysterious murder of domestic helper Manormeeta Salwaro Dadi, whose headless body was discovered by a Dubai municipality cleaner on May 27.


In a report by Khaleej Times, Ambro, a relative of the victim, fatally stabbed and robbed her of 10,000 dirhams (P130,000).

Ambro chopped off Dadi’s head, legs and hands in his home before he rented a car and burned her body parts in an abandoned area. After the heinous incident, Ambro returned to his place and disposed of his murder instruments in a dumpster. Ambro murdered Dadi, who had escaped her employer seven days before her death, because he had failed to pay her back his debt.

Major General Khalil Al Mansouri, assistant to the Dubai Police chief in Criminal Investigation Affairs, told The National, “He confessed during investigations that the maid requested her money back. The man could not pay her back and decided to kill her.”

“He cleaned the windshield of blood, lowered the chair and covered her body with a towel and drove back to Dubai,” Al Mansouri said.

To establish Dadi’s identity, Dubai police peeked into 9,751 profiles of absconded Asian maids and compared DNA samples by visiting their sponsors until a DNA match for the victim was found.

The culprit previously worked as a butcher before landing a salesman’s job in Dubai. He admitted the crime and is now facing trial.  Gianna Francesca Catolico/rga
