SITG formed to probe slay of councilor

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

The Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office has created a Special Investigation Task Group to probe the killing of Sta. Catalina Councilor Rude Anthony Melodia on Jan. 10.

Melodia, 29, was gunned down by three motorcycle riding suspects while he was cleaning his vehicle outside his residence in Brgy. Poblacion of the municipality, the police said.

He was brought to the Bayawan District Hospital, where he died, the police said.

Five empty shells of a .45 caliber pistol were recovered at the crime scene by responding town policemen. Melodia, a former Sangguniang Kabataan official before he won as councilor in 2019, was the son of former Mayor Ruben Melodia.*
