Police are investigating the brutal killing of a fastfood chain employee and PNP applicant last week.

City Police Director Sr. Supt. Edwin Deocampo yesterday said he and his men are still gathering information that would lead to the identities of the killers who stabbed and killed Bryan Emid, 23, single, of Roxas municipality,Zamboanga del Norte.

A police report disclosed that Emid was taken to the Zamboanga City Medical Center several minutes after he left at the fast food chain where he was working at midnight last Thursday. Physicians pronounced Emid dead on arrival due to multiple stab wounds in the different parts of the body.

A report reaching Daily Zamboanga Times earlier disclosed that Emid was found bloodied with stab wounds in the body along Gov. Alvarez St, and was assisted by four men who rushed him to the ZCMC.

Deocampo said that hospital personnel did not follow the standard operating procedure in which they should have taken the identities of the four men who brought the victim considering Emid was a stabbing victim.

The four men reportedly left the hospital after Emid was brought to the emergency room.

Deocampo said security personnel should have held the four, asked them for information on what happened to the victim or call the police.

Emid’s personal belongings like wallet containing cash were reportedly missing when he arrived at the hospital.

Deocampo said that only the statement of the four men as told to medical staff at the ZCMC that Emid was found bloodied along Gov. Alvarez St. However this was not confirmed.

Last Friday, Emid’s girlfriend went to television and radio stations to make public service announcement that he failed to return home after work.

On the same day, the girlfriend found out that Emid’s remains were already lying in state at the Villa Funeral Home.   

DZT gathered that Emid was working part time at a popular fastfood chain while waiting for a call from the Philippine National Police for training to become enlisted policeman.

Deocampo said that the case remains under investigation.
