‘Salvage victim’ found in Victorias subdivision

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

The body of a man believed to be a victim of “salvaging” was found yesterday at Canetown Subdivision in Brgy. 19-A, Victorias City, Negros Occidental Lt. Col. Eduardo Corpuz, Victorias City police chief said.

The victim, whose identity the police has yet to establish, may have been dumped in the area by the suspects, Corpuz said.

Initial police investigations showed that the victim was hogtied and his head wrapped with  packaging tape. He also succumbed to multiple injuries and  his ears showed signs of being cut.

The victim was wearing a black shirt and  blue and gray shorts with “HGL” letters tattooed in right shoulders.

Corpuz said  a placard with the message “I Love Drugs” and the  name of a woman, warning her that she will be the next, was placed on the victim’s body. The police has already identified and located the woman and invited her for questioning at the Victorias City Police Station.

Corpuz urged families with a missing member to check the cadaver at a funeral parlor at Osmena Street in Victorias City.

He said that they have not recovered any fired cartridges at the scene of incident, reinforcing their beliefs that the victim may have been executed in another place and dumped at Canetown Subdivision in Victorias.

Meanwhile, a laborer identified as Jorge Alfonso, 37, was declared dead on arrival March 6 at a hospital after he was stabbed allegedly by Edgar Jalapa in Purok Cabangahan, Brgy. Bantayan, Kabankalan City.

Initial police investigations showed that the victim, the suspect,  and friends, were having a drinking spree, when the stabbing incident took place, which the police said was triggered by personal grudges.

Alfonso succumbed to stab wounds in the back, and chest, while Jalapa immediately fled, after the stabbing incident, police said.*
