A farmer was stabbed and killed last Tuesday at Sitio Cabaong-baongan in San Carlos City’s Barangay Prosperidad. Authorities identified the fatality as 56-year-old Estelito Saylo-on of the said neighborhood.
According to police, the victim was reportedly stabbed by brothers, 50-year-old Daniel Embalsado and 38-year-old Rubin Embalsado, who are also farmers and residents of the said area.
Law enforcement officials believe Saylo-on was ambushed by the pair, who fled following the incident.
The victim’s son and wife brought him to San Carlos City Hospital, where he was declared dead-on-arrival after sustaining wounds across his body.
Police are currently conducting a hot pursuit operation against the two while looking into a possible motive./WDJ
