EDITORIAL| Brutal deaths

FOR THE past two weeks, nine bodies, two of them women,  were found in various places, some as far as Bukidnon, North Cotabato and Davao Occidental. They were initially reported as missing or abducted by their families.

The two recent abductions that end up in death were that of Leo Peralta and Jaymark Lesondra, both in their early 20s. They were reported missing and were found in Arakan Valley, North Cotabato last January 19.

Law enforcers based in Toril are said to be looking into these killings, with Chief Inspector Milgrace C. Driz, DCPO spokesperson, saying that the police has gathered information on the nine cases.

Driz said the investigators are looking at personal grudge as motive of the killings. The way their bodies were disposed by the perpetrators are just too brutal. They were either thrown out to the sea or dumped in far away areas.

We are confident that given the resources of our intelligence community, these extra judicial executions will be solved and the perpetrators brought to justice at the soonest time.  One of the city’s pride is the stable peace and order situation. Unsolved abductions and killings like these put a dark cloud on the real state of our city. We do not want this to happen.
