Gumban’s money,
belongings missing

The family of Dr. Andres Gumban has declared that items worth at least P100,000 were missing from his house at the Regent Pearl Subdivision in Brgy. Alijis, Bacolod City, after his murder Thursday.

City Police Director Senior Supt. Ricardo de la Paz confirmed this yesterday, adding that among the items missing were an I-pod, a necklace, a wrist watch and P50,000 in cash.

He also said it is not farfetched that there are other suspects aside from Fof Pascual Jr., 18, of Barangay Tadlong, Sagay City, and the 16-year-old from Cadiz City, whose name is being withheld as he is a minor, and whom Gumban had met in Facebook.moremoremore
