A cashier of the Teresita Jalandoni Provincial Hospital in Silay City was shot and killed Wednesday, and his body, with a gunshot wound in the head, was found yesterday at Sitio Mambukog, Brgy. Zone 16, Talisay City, Negros Occidental.

Aside from a gunshot wound in the head, the victim, identified as Jude Ilagan, 36, of Brgy. E. Lopez, Silay City, also suffered a broken rib, his brother, Al, said.

He was found dead the next day, investigations of the Talisay police showed.

SPO4 Carlito Ruales of the Talisay City Police Station, said they were texted by a certain Michael Quiachon that the body of an unidentified person was found in their place. The victim was identified by members of his family only yesterday.

Al described Jude as a good brother, and had no known enemies. Supt. Thomas Joseph Martir, Talisay police chief, said they are now exerting efforts for a breakthrough in their investigations, but admitted that they have no witness yet.

Meanwhile, a man who was reported missing on Tuesday, was found dead a well in Brgy. Recreo, Pontevedra, police said.
