A 10-year-old boy was beaten to death by an SK chairman in Barangay Bag-ong Pitogo, Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur last Friday afternoon.

Insp. Ariel Huesca, Police Regional Information Office chief, identified the fatality as Richard Lucero Y Cabasag. He was mauled by Algien Lucero y Ruiles, 20, single, and the SK chairman of Barangay Bag-ong Pitogo.

A police report disclosed that Algien Lucero, who was under the influence of liquor, himself informed Dennis Lopez, who is temporarily staying in their house, that he had killed Richard and dumped his body into a creek.

At first, Lopez ignored Lucero thinking that he was just joking considering that he was drunk.

However, Lucero insisted to take Lopez to the creek where he saw the body of Richard. Later on, the parents of the boy started looking for him as he failed to return home.

The parents went to Lucero’s house after some residents saw him with the boy getting bananas in their place.

The parentsmet Lopez who told them that Richard was dead.

Lopez accompanied the parents to the creek where they recovered the Richard’s body.

Barangay Chairman Jose Casas and some barangay officials immediately went to the house of the suspect and arrested him. He was turned over to the police for the filing of charges in court.

The suspect told the police that he killed the boy by hitting him with a blunt object due to drunkenness. – Dan Toribio Jr.
