The Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) Police Station 4 continues to look for witnesses who can give solid evidence in the recent murder of Jury Orario, a member of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) community.

Police Station 4 commander, Captain Francis Depasucat, said they are currently validating the information gathered in the killing and they will not leave any stone unturned as new evidence can further expedite the case’s resolution.

Orario, 37 years old, was found dead in Greensville 2 Subdivision’s St. Francis Street in the city’s Barangay Villamonte early Monday morning, September 4.

No signs of injuries were found on the victim, except for the blood on his head.

It can be recalled that the suspects in Orario’s murder were allegedly the victim’s associates.

Earlier, police said the motive in the murder could be connected to the sale of illegal drugs.

They are still verifying if Orario was on the drug watchlist./DGB, WDJ
