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.
