According to his wife, she last saw Christopher Namoca on February 2 as he left to drive for Uber. He didn’t come home that night. She was still able to contact him by phone on February 3 and 4. But by February 5, Namoca could no longer be reached.

The Uber driver’s body was discovered after a tip from a certain Jimmy Salac, who told officers in Barangay Salawang in Dasmarinas, Cavite that a body had been buried at the quarry site. Salac has since disappeared leading authorities to believe he is involved in Namoca’s death. Police are also looking for a certain Benedict Saramines, whom they believe is also involved in the killing, according to GMA News.

No word on what happened nor the whereabouts of the Uber vehicle of Christopher Namoca.

The murder of the Uber driver comes four months after the killing of another TNVS driver, Gerardo Maquidato of Grab, who was killed in Pasay City in November.
