Killer looks: Police release facial composites of gunmen who shot Batocabe’s
The Philippine National Police (PNP) has released computerized facial composites of the two men who allegedly shot Ako Bicol party-list Rep. Rodel Batocabe and his security aide last week.
Based on the description provided to the police, one of the suspects is aged 30 to 35, stands 5’5″ to 5’6″ and with fair complexion.
The other suspect is aged between 30 and 40 years old, has dark complexion and “facial stretch line marks on his right chin.”
Batocabe was shot dead on December 22 after leading a gift-giving activity in Barangay Burgos, Daraga, Albay. His security aide was also killed in the incident.
Politics is emerging to be the primary motive in Batocabe’s killing as he was reportedly the leading mayoralty candidate in Daraga for the 2019 elections.
Duterte and Batocabe’s friends have raised a P50-million bounty for informants who will lead police to the killer and mastermind of the murder.
