A 20-year-old drug suspect killed his own mother  by hitting her head with a rock  at Purok Malunggay, Pagadian City last Friday.

Chief Insp. Helen Galvez, Police Regional Office-9 Information Officer, identified the victim as 47-year-old Gina Tinga y Daniel, a housewife and resident of Purok Malunggay.

Tinga was allegedly killed by her jobless son, identified as Almer Tinga y Daniel, 20.

Investigation disclosed that Tinga was washing her laundry by the river at around 9 a.m. when Almer hit her head with a 20-kilogram rock, killing her on the spot.

An hour later, the victim’s daughter, Wellen, was bringing food to her mother when she saw the latter face down, seemingly lifeless.

The girl ran towards their house and reported the incident to her father Claudio.

The victim’s husband hurriedly went to the area and saw his wife’s lifeless body with a 56 sq. inch rock by her side.

The body of Gina was brought by her husband to their house located some 100 meters from the river.

Pagadian police have arrested Almer during manhunt operations after the killing.

It was learned that Almer had been jailed for drug use prior to the incident. (Ely Dumaboc)
