The Freeman

CEBU, Philippines - A former member of the defunct Integrated National Police was found dead with stab wounds just a few meters away from his residence at Sitio Camaso, Barangay Giwang, Alcoy town past 10 p.m. on Friday.

Police Officer 3 Andy Gornez, desk officer of Alcoy Police Station, identified the fatality as Peo Hil Kosaro Sage Romarate, 59.

Gornez, in a telephone interview, said that the victim’s neighbor, Ruth Rodriguez, saw the victim lying on the grasslands facing down, around nine meters away from his house.

Rodriguez approached the victim but was shocked to discover that he had blood stains in his body, so she went to the police station to report.

Police operatives accompanied her to the crime scene and they inspected the body to check if the victim was alive.

The responders called a doctor who declared the victim dead.

Gornez said that the former INP personnel probably came from the city and was heading home, but was stabbed along the way.

“Posibli nga gikan ni sa siyudad unya giatangan ni siya usa gidunggab,” Gornez said, adding that they are still investigating the motive of the crime.

He added that the police found a stab wound in Romarate’s chest and another in his right leg.

Meanwhile, a 37-year-old man was found with fatal stab wound along the side of the road in Purok 1, Barangay Bangbang, Cordova town past 2 a.m. on Friday.

A resident in the area, who was onboard a trisikad, saw Maximiano Tumulak Jr. shaking on the side of the road.

The resident disembarked the trisikad and checked on Tumulak and discovered that the victim had a stab wound in his back.

He called for police assistance but when the authorities arrived the victim was already dead. Tumulak’s body has been brought to the funeral parlor for an autopsy while the police are looking for witnesses and evidence that may help solve the killing.  —  Bryner L. Diaz/ATO (FREEMAN)
