A man was allegedly stabbed and hacked dead with a bolo by his companion who he had a daylong drinking spree in Sevilla on Sunday.
According to Staff Sgt. Niño Cutin of the Sevilla Police Station, victim Crispino Jumawid was repeatedly stabbed before the suspect slit his throat at a makeshift rest area near a rice paddy in Barangay Calinga-an.
Cutin meanwhile called on the suspect of the gruesome murder, identified as Albert Yuco, 30, who remained at large to surrender.
“Wa may lain kay siya maoy kauban sa biktima unya misibat man,” said Cutin.
Yuco and Jumawid were in a drinking spree since morning with several others but they were the only ones left right before the incident at past 6:30 p.m.
“Buntag pa man gasugod na ni sila og inom, nag-ihaw og iro” said Cutin. “Pito ni sila kabuok nag-inom unya ang uban nanguna na’g panguli.”
Based on statements from the victim’s other drinking companions, Yuco and Jumawid figured in a drunken argument before they left but were pacifiied.
They however believed that the two continued to fight when they left, leading to the stabbing icnident.
Meanwhile, investigators continued their probe to identify the motive behind the grisly murder.
Cutin said that Jumawid sustained stab wounds in his stomach, chest and neck.
Yuco immediately left the scene of the crime and has yet to be seen following the incident. (R. Tutas)
