2 ‘salvage’ victims discovered in Bago


The bodies of two unidentified persons believed to have been summarily executed were found in Purok Mainuswagon, Brgy. Atipuluan, Bago City, Negros Occidental, Thursday night.

Both victims were hogtied and had succumbed to multiple injuries, Bago City acting police chief Maj. John Joel Batusbatusan said.

He said that SOCO (Scene Of the Crime Operatives) members are still in the process of establishing if the injuries of the victims were caused by stabbing or shooting

Three live ammunition of an M-16 armalite rifle and a note written on a cardboard saying “Di Pagparisi Drug Pusher Ko Ya” (Don’t emulate me, I am a drug pusher) were recovered by the Bago City police at the crime scene.

Batusbatusan said that the two victims were not known to Atipuluan barangay residents.

As of last night, nobody had claimed the cadavers of the victims at a funeral parlor in Bago City, he added.

Meanwhile, two persons were stabbed dead yesterday by a man who went amuck in Brgy. Macasilao, Calatrava, Negros Occidental.

The fatalities were identified by the Calatrava police as Mayo Lumanog, 30, and Sergio Cabriana, 31. Injured was John Bacoli, 54. All of them are residents of the barangay.

The Calatrava police said the suspect, identified as Antonio Dumalag Jr., alias Dondon, 31, who was armed with a bladed weapon, challenged anybody to a fight.

Lumanog and Cabriana were both stabbed by Dumalag, after he was punched by the two victims, the4 police said.

Bacoli, who tried to pacify them, was also stabbed in his left hand by the suspect, who immediately fled after inflicting injuries to the three victims.

Lumanog and Cabriana died at the Calatrava District Hospital, the police also said.*
