The beheaded remains of a 37-year-old man were recently found in the mountainous area of Barangay Banban in Ayungon, Negros Oriental.
Police identified the fatality as Reneboy Emalon, a resident of Barangay Carol-an in the said town.
Ayungon town police said, based on records, Emalon was a primary suspect in a murder and rape incident in Barangay Carol-an last February 7.
An autopsy of the victim’s remains revealed he suffered several cuts across different parts of his body, along with six bullet wounds from a .45 caliber pistol.
Ayungon police are presently conducting an investigation and believe the Emalon’s alleged criminality to be one of the motives./DGB, WDJ
