A Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) corps commander has been detained at the Dumangas police to face charges over the death of a fellow student, after the latter spread rumors about him.
The suspect was identified as Elmer Decilao, 22, a graduating student pursuing Bachelor of Arts in Education degree.
The victim, Willy Amihoy, 23, a freshman pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree, was found dead inside the comfort room of the boys’ dormitory of Iloilo State College of Fisheries (ISCOF) – Dumangas Campus yesterday noon.
According to Police Maj. John Suegay, Amihoy allegedly bullied Decilao by accusing him of stealing a wallet. This greatly peeved the suspect until he killed the victim by hitting him on the head with a pipe.
School security guard Rex Damian received a report about an altercation inside the boy’s dormitory in the campus. When he went there to investigate, he found drops of blood on the kitchen floor. The bloodstains led him inside the toilet where the victim was slumped face down on the floor.
