The Bacolod City Police Office is validating reports of the presence of a suspected vigilante group operating in Bacolod City, Senior Supt. Flynn Dongbo, BCPO officer-in-charge, said yesterday.

The group is being linked to the deaths of Romulo Arseña, alias “Kid Ramir” on March 2, and of retired SPO2 Jonathan Hermosora and his carpenter, Renato Cuesta, on April 1. The incidents happened in Barangay Mansilingan, Bacolod.

“We cannot confirm it yet but there is an ongoing validation if it is true that there is this kind of group,” Dongbo said.

Thousands venerate
Our Lady of Simala

Thousands of Marian devotees keep coming to Dumaguete City to pay homage to the visiting pilgrim image of the Our Lady of Simala, which arrived Monday for a five day visit.

The Our Lady of Simala from Lindogon, Simala in Sibonga, Cebu, is said to be miraculous, having shed tears in previous occasions and has grown in popularity over the years since a child who was dying from dengue was healed, according to accounts of her.

Bishop Julito Cortes of the Diocese of Dumaguete officiated in the concelebrated mass Monday evening at the St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral in Dumaguete, in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Simala.
