MANILA, Philippines — The Manila Police District (MPD) has filed multiple complaints against several members of the Aegis Juris Fraternity over the apparent fatal hazing Horacio "Atio" Castillo III.

In a two-page letter complaint, the MPD recommended filing of murder, anti-hazing, and robbery complaints against the following:

  • John Paul Solano
  • Ralph Trangia
  • Antonio Trangia (Ralph's father)
  • Arvin R. Balag
  • Mhin Wei R. Chan
  • Ranie Rafael Santiago
  • Oliver John Audrey B. Onofre
  • Jason Adolfo Robiños
  • Danielle Hans Matthew Rodrigo
  • Karl Mathew Villanueva
  • Joshua Joriel Macabali
  • Axel Munro Hipe
  • Marc Anthony Ventura
  • Aeron Salientes
  • Marcelino Bagtang
  • Zimon Padro
  • Jose Miguel Salamat

A separate obstruction of justice was filed against Rosemarie Trangia, Ralph's mother.

Ralph and his father are being eyed two of the primary suspects in the case. Antonio owns the vehicle reportedly used by Ralph to transport Atio's body from the hazing venue to Tondo, Manila.

Ralph fled the country on September 19 with his mother. He first boarded a flight to Taiwan via NAIA Terminal 1 before flying out to Chicago.

Solano, among the primary suspects in the case, is also facing additional perjury and obstruction of justice charges.

Solano, accompanied by his lawyer Paterno Esmaquel, arrived at the Department of Justice (DOJ) for his inquest proceeding.

Atio's parents, Carmina and Horacio Castillo II, also attended the inquest proceeding.

Several unidentified members of Aegis Juris Fraternity and Regina Legis et Juris Sorority are also facing murder, anti-hazing and robbery complaints.

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II placed 20 members of the Aegis Juris Fraternity under an Immigration Lookout Bulletin Order on September 22.
