Two Suspects Were at Last Identified


Within the weekend, the City Police had at last made a notable breakthroughto a couple of particular cases.An arrest oftwo suspects to a consecutive killing in La Bella—the previous weeks. If you remember that late security guard of Don Pablo Memorial High School, he was killed in Lunzuran. Accordingly, he was hired that same fateful nightby his own killers.The victim was working at that time as an extra habal-habal driver. He wasn’t able to go home; he was shot that night.

The second victim was that guy from Cabaluay. He was killed too when he was driving a habal-habal. Maybe hired by the same suspects. He was brought in a secluded place, there was robbed and eventually killed. You probably heard our news in these two cases. They were horrible crimes, committed by the perpetrators in a cold-blooded way.

The mystery then of the killings was: it left no clear trails, as to solve the case for the investigators. Albeit, the authorities did not stop to do their jobs, until eventually something a lead floated that those killings were connected to a simple robbery, and that the perpetrators were a same group. There were five persons who were implicated. The two were then arrested, while the other three remain to be at large, up to the writing of this column.

So, things are clearer now, that it was plain robbery which were behind those enigmatic crimes. The families were in limbo too, because they could not remember any motive for their loved-ones to just be killed ordinarily. In fact, everyone thought that the victimswere mistaken as the actual targets.

Especially that security guard, he left small children and his plainhousewife. The economy of the family is now in bleak because of the sudden death of the bread-winner of the family. Again, his death was immature and a total heartbreak to his family. Thus, the entire people of Zamboanga cries justice for his death. With regards to that man from Cabaluay, his family did also attest that the victim was a good man.

The above factors did probably addthe needed motivations for the authorities to seriously endeavor their intelligence, andultimately break the mystery of the crime. So, a necessary case shall be filed by the police against the arrested suspects. The evidence of the police may be strong, but they are bound to follow the procedure. Hence, a sure prosecution shall be done against the suspects in court. And if proven guilty, they will be convicted.

We thought that robbery has already subsided in La Bella. But because of this recent development, we are compelled to believe that indeed we are not to put our guard down. There can be many reasons why folks, may be able to commit a cold-blooded robbery. One: there is the bondage of the use of illegal drugs, so that the former would have to brave any criminality, just to be able to feed their carnal cravings for the illegal substance.

The style of the robbers, which they undertook to commit the above crimes, were both similar. They perpetrated their overt acts away from any crowd, at nighttime and to habal-habal drivers. Thankfully, they were apprehended then. Lest there could be more victims whom they could rob and kill. When this news was reported, many folks all over did express their anger. So that they also wanted to kind of hurt the suspects.

You know, how any normal sympathy rises from a heart, when an innocent person is disadvantaged, and much killed. When the same suspects may be transferred then to the City Jail, they will face a sure crowd who can be a match to their caliber. We hope, the silent punishments they may get from fellow detainees will not be grave, so that they can face the real prosecution of the State.

You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” (Deut. 6:6-9, ESV)
