THE regional office of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI-10) has lost an agent who died unexpectedly Monday night.
NBI-10 director Patricio Bernales Jr. said Tuesday head agent Alex Cabornay, 54, was at a party when he suddenly collapsed.
As of this writing, it was not yet clear what caused Cabornay’s death as the NBI-10 and the deceased’s family are still waiting for the postmortem result, he said.
“His death was a big loss to the NBI-10,” Bernales said.
A few months prior to his death, Cabornay was one of the NBI-10 agents who assisted hundreds of individuals who were victimized in the online financial scam in the city.
Based on his social media profile, Cabornay, from Iligan City, was a graduate of Bachelor of Arts major in Political Science at the Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT) in 1986.
He received a law degree at the IIT School of Law in 1991.
Cabornay started working at the NBI in 1994. (Jigger Jerusalem)
