 “Even Satan will be horrified to see what they have done.”

Thus did a tearful Arsenio Evangelista confirm Tuesday that the charred body found by a farmer in the remote barangay of Buliran on Friday was that of his missing son, car dealer Venson Evangelista.

Also last week, the charred bodies of car dealer Emerson Lozano and his driver, Ernane Sensil, were found in Porac, Pampanga, and La Paz, Tarlac, respectively.

“There seems to be a relationship between the [Lozano and Evangelista] cases. That’s why we are readying a joint case conference. I suggested maybe we can merge the two cases,” said Chief Supt. Benjardi Mantele, the Quezon City Police District director.

Supt. Eliseo Cruz, Cabanatuan police chief, said a farmer found Evangelista’s body, with a deep wound in the nape and packaging tape covering the face, near an irrigation canal in Purok 1 in Buliran.

The body had been burned with the use of a rubber tire, Cruz said.

Spring Picnic Ideas

Plant a tree. Go to your favorite picnic spot and plant a tree. This is a great picnic idea because they can water the tree whenever you come back for your next picnic.

Catching Butterflies. This one is more for late spring but catching butterflies can be a great spring picnic activity for both boys and girls. Don't forget the butterfly nets!

Bird Watching. Spring may well be the best time for bird watching. Birds always seem busiest in the spring time. It shouldn't be hard to find a bird making a nest or tending to baby birds.

Nature Walk. A scroll through the forest can give you some nice alone time. Find a good spot to have a romantic picnic along the way and just enjoy the tranquility of the forest.

Rowboat ride on a pond. This is one of the most time-tested romantic spring picnic ideas.

Horseback Riding. A casual horseback ride out on the countryside is another classic romantic picnic idea. This is an especially good romantic idea for a spring picnic because you don't have to contend with the hot summer sun.

Badminton. This is a fun game to bring along to a picnic because the equipment is so light and easy to carry. It's also a simple game that anyone can learn in just a few minutes.

Hiking. Take a hike to a scenic view or natural landmark.

Mountain Biking. For those of you who are a little more adventurous, try mountain biking. It's certainly great exercise and you can easily pack a light picnic to along with you. Picnic Backpacks are great for these

Anne Hathaway has been hired to be a guest star on the music-themed comedy series "Glee," the TV show's executive producer said.

Brad Falchuck told Hathaway will play the lesbian aunt of the show's gay character, Kurt.
"It was her idea, and (with) someone like her, it's sort of hard to say no!" Falchuck said. "We don't generally get excited about guest stars just for the sake of guest stars, but when you have someone like Gwyneth (Paltrow) or Anne Hathaway, where you can say, 'They are amazing' ... they are big gifts to you."

Paltrow appeared on "Glee" earlier this season and sang several songs.

Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt, said he can't wait to work with Hathaway, star of "The Princess Diaries," "The Devil Wears Prada," "Becoming Jane" and "Love & Other Drugs."

"Anne Hathaway lesbian -- that sentence is awesome!" he told "I am very much looking forward to that."
