Farm manager killed in Cadiz

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

A manager of an agrarian reform cooperative in Hacienda Dalayapan, Brgy. Caduha-an, Cadiz City, Negros Occidental, was shot dead by a group of unidentified armed men on May 4, the police said.

The victim, identified by the Cadiz police as Manalo Porre, 51, sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was declared dead on arrival at the Cadiz City Emergency Clinic.

Initial investigations of the Cadiz City police showed that Porre, the farm manager of the Dalayapan Agrarian Reform Cooperative, was on his way to Hacienda Dalayapan on board a motorcycle when he was waylaid and shot by unidentified men.

DARCO, that supervises the well-known Darco café in Brgy. Caduha-an, is composed mostly of former rebels and agrarian reform beneficiaries.

Recovered at the crime scene were six empty shells and four ammunition of an M16 armalite rifle, five spent shells of a .45 caliber pistol, and a slug of a still unknown caliber of firearm.

More than a month ago, unidentified armed men also shot and killed Porre’s elder brother, Larry, in the same place, Lt. Col. Rocky Desear, the Cadiz City police chief, said.

Desear said he suspects that the killings of the Porre brothers may have been related. The NPA Roselyn Jean Pelle Command earlier claimed responsibility for the killing of Larry, a former government militiaman, in Sitio Aluyan of the barangay on March 26.*
