BAGUIO CITY – The knife used by still unidentified suspects in stabbing to death a 17-year old student of the St. Louis University (SLU) inside his aunt’s residence in Purok 15, Irisan, Baguio was said to be missing in the crime scene.
Police authorities that the assassins of Aristonne Inyoh, 17, single a student of SLU and a native of Banaue, Ifugao, were actually known to him because there was no forcible entry inside the house as evidenced by the locked door and neatly arranged things inside the house.
It can be recalled that the lifeless body of Inyoh was discovered by his father Wednesday afternoon after he came from the province to visit him and get an update on the development of his studies.
Based on the results of the autopsy conducted by personnel of the Scene of the Crime Operation (SOCO) team, the victim sustained nine stab wound on his back, one stab wound on his neck, one stab wound on his nape and a sliced wound on his chest.
Probers are now tracking the close circle of friends of the victim in order to gather the necessary information that would aid them in determining the real motive behind his murder and for the subsequent arrest of the suspects for the filing of the appropriate charges against them.
The victim’s relatives are now calling for justice and for the suspects to have the conscience to surrender and admit their involvement in the crime so that everyone will have the peace of mind considering that the refusal of the suspects to yield will surely contribute in disturbing their daily lives because of their conscience.
