A caregiver was found dead with multiple stab wounds, and lying beside the road in Purok Masagana in Brgy. Taculing, Bacolod City, at about 1:30 a.m. yesterday.
Station 6 commander, Chief Insp. Noel Polines, identified the victim as Raymund Aliling, 26, of San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, and an in-house caregiver of the Eusebio family at Pleasantville Subdivision, Taculing.
Investigation conducted by Senior Police Officer 1 Jose Roy Militante showed that Aliling went home from the Pablo O. Torre Memorial Hospital, where his employer was confined, at about 11 p.m. Thursday and that was the last time he was seen alive.
Polines said they already have the list of three possible suspects in the killing of Aliling, one of them a minor, although he refused to identify them, pending their arrests.
Polines added that they went to the houses of the suspects but they did not find them there.
A witness, whose identity is being withheld, told the police that he saw Aliling walking along the road in Purok Masagana when the suspects approached and invited him to come with them to the birthday party of a resident.
The witness added that, minutes later, a commotion took place and the suspects were seen running while the victim was later found lying on the pavement, bathed in blood.
Polines said they have already ruled out the robbery angle in the killing as the victim’s cellular phone and wallet with P60 in cash were not taken.
He said that Aliling, who is the breadwinner of his family in San Carlos City, is described by his employers as a good man with no known enemies.
His remains are now at the St. Peter Funeral Chapels in Brgy. Alijis, Bacolod and will undergo autopsy.*APN
