Albay police to check links on Batocabe killing with 2 dead persons found in separate incident


LEGAZPI CITY, Albay — As if sounding off from a storyline from a mystery movie, police found two bodies in Daraga, Albay on Sunday, December 23, the following morning after AKO Bicol congressman Rodel Batocabe was gunned down Saturday afternoon in the same town.

Police investigators have to detemine if there was a link between the discovered cadavers and the shooting of Batocabe who was running for the mayoralty post in the town.

The bodies were found at Barangay Gabawan, just barely a 10-minute drive, or 5-kilometer walk, from Barangay Burgos, where Batocabe and his policeman bodyguard were shot dead during a gift-giving event for senior citizens and disabled persons, the tragic event that resulted into the wounding of several persons during the assassination of Batocabe.

Still unidentified, police described the two as males, with gunshot wounds in different parts of their bodies when found. No identification cards were found, and police investigators must determine if the 2 persons were killed sometime after the killing of Batocabe. [BicolToday.com]
