The mutilated body of Fernando Tizon of Brgy. Bato inside a sack was thrown
to Himogaan River but was fortunately entangled between stones.
Edmund, one of the children of Fernando said that his father informed them he
was going to his farm to feed his ducks Friday afternoon.
The victim failed to come home in the evening. They thought he was just in
the farm. But the next day, Saturday he failed to come home again.
This prompted the victim’s wife and other siblings to go to the farm, but
they too failed to see him.
Edmund suspected that their neighbor in the farm was behind the killing.
He refused to identify the suspect.
The whole family of the suspect were no longer in their house built beside
the farm of the victim.
They also recovered a bolo with bloodstains in the said house.
Edmund believes it was the weapon used in the killing of his father. They
turned it over to Sagay City PNP.
