Police identified the fatality as Justiniano delas Peñas Barriga, married, and a farmer. He succumbed to multiple contusions on the different parts of his body. He was clubbed to death by his son Ronald, 29, married, who committed suicide.

A police report disclosed that Ronald went to the house of his father to ask for food. However, Justiniano got mad and took a piece of wood then struck it at  Ronald several times. Ronald fought back and managed to wrestle control of the wood from his father’s hands. He attacked his father until he fell to the ground died on the spot. Ronald fled from the crime scene but minutes later police found his body hanging from a rope tied around his neck. — Noning R. Antonio
