"Philippine investigators today arrested a man suspected of being linked to the "I Love You" computer virus after raiding his apartment and finding computer equipment."

"The man's live-in girlfriend, who was not home at the time, was also considered a suspect, said Federico Opinion, chief of the National Bureau of Investigation. The girlfriend promised to appear later at the investigation headquarters, where she was expected to be arrested."

"The man's relatives, however, said they believe the real culprit may have been the girlfriend's 23-year-old sister, who also lives in the apartment. The sister recently graduated in computer engineering from the Philippines' AMA Computer College--a school linked by one U.S. computer security company to the virus."
