Land caretaker found dead


A 54-year-old land caretaker was found dead with multiple stab wounds along the road of Barangay Tolosa, this city on Wednesday.

Police Station 3 commander Chief Inspector Chester Natividad identified the fatality as Cecilo Francisco y Juan, 54, married and a resident of Sitio Hapa, Barangay Salaan, this city.

Natividad said that the victim suffered 3 stab wounds in his right leg which caused his untimely death.

Investigation conducted by the local police disclosed that the wife of the victim received information from their neighbors that her husband was seen lying lifeless along the road in Tolosa.

Police said the wife sought immediate assistance from the Tolosa barangay officials where they found out that the victim is already dead. The village officials brought Francisco to La Merced Funeral Homes for the post mortem examination.

Natividad told Zamboanga Today that he believes that the victim has possibly been in a drinking session where he  ended up being stabbed by his drinking pals.

A deeper investigation is still being conducted by the police to establish the identity of the assailants and the possible motive of the killing. (Peping Heramil)
