Police have identified the three dead men whose bodies were found in Barangay Mercedes last Monday.
The victims were Jonil Gerodiaz, alias Dodoy, Dennis Dagoog alias Baden and Ariel Laure alias Totong, all natives of Sitio Palid, Magdoog, Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay.

Police said that their identities were based on the record at the Villa Funeral Parlor after their relatives claimed the bodies.

A police report said the relatives arrived at the funeral parlor last Tuesday night and left bringing the bodies.

Aside from the names, police do not have other information on  the background of the dead men whose bodies bore gunshot wounds.

Police said it was only the management of the funeral parlor that provided them the names of the victims.

Police tried to locate the victims’ relatives but they returned to Ipil immediately.

The three dead men were hogtied, and were discovered amid grasses near a ricefield in Mercedes last Monday morning. — Dan Toribio Jr.
