Bike-riding ‘vigilantes’ strike anew, kill ex-inmate

Correspondent .

A STILL unidentified man, believed to be a “vigilante,” pumped a bullet into the head of a former inmate in Barangay Bugo, this city, Monday night.

The victim, 36-year-old Herman Patalinghug of Zone 6, Balite Drive, Bugo, had just been released from the capitol-run prison facility on Corrales Ave..

Maj. Abdul Sumandar, Puerto police chief, said Patalinghug released just last month.

Sumandar said Patalinhug was with his girlfriend outside his house at around 10 pm Monday when three men on a motocycle passed by.

He said one of the men stepped down, walked towards Patalinghug, and shot him to the head.

Sumandar said the triggerman fired a gun twice without saying a word. One of the bullets pierced through Patalinhug’s head and exited to his cheek.

Neighbors rushed him to a hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.

The victim’s sister Helen said her brother had no known enemies although used to be a drug user. She said her brother kicked the habit.

Police however said investigators were looking into the possibility that the killing was a result of a “love triangle.”

Meanwhile, a 30-year-old man hanged himself in his house in Barangay Maloko, Manolo Fortich town in Bukidnon, Monday evening.

Police identified the suicide as 30-year old Jaya Sumad whose body was found hanging by his neighbors at around 8 pm.

Jake Malicay, Sumad’s neighbor, said the suicide was unhappy with his life, and always complained because he was alone and could hardly eat meals because he was poor.

“Bisan unsa lang iyang ibaligya adto. Usahay mga dagum, ballpen ug uban pang ginagmay pero di gyud moigo sa iyang kinahanglanon kada adlaw,” Malicay said.
