A habal-habal driver was brutally killed in Bunguiao last Monday after reportedly trying to collect money that he earlier advanced to three brothers.

The fatality was identified as Arnel Pantaleon y Alfaro, 38 years old, married.

Initial investigation showed that last Monday, Pantaleon went to his grandfather’s house in Sibuco to bring some goods.

When Pantaleon returned home that afternoon, he was reportedly hacked and killed by at least five men.

The victim’s body, discovered at around 4pm, was said to have multiple hack wounds and a slit throat.

During ocular investigation, police recovered the victim’s motorcycle, a bolo still in its scabbard and a 5.56 caliber bullet at the crime scene.

Pantaleon’s brothers identified the suspects as three brothers who reportedly owed the victim money and two of their cohorts.

It was learned that the victim had been asking for payment for the suspects’ debt which reportedly drew the latter’s ire.  (Dan Toribio)
