THE SLAIN man found inside his bedroom at Sitio Egay in barangay Biao Escueta in Tugbok Ditrict Monday tried to fight off his attacker, police said.

The victim Jerry Diamalon Gollodo, 35, who has a mental illness, was found dead by her sister Zenaida, 41, in his room around 6:30 a.m.

Based on the initial investigation conducted by Police Officer 3 (PO3) Dexter Cadoyas, of the Mintal police, Jerry succumbed to multiple stab wounds in different parts of his body. The police also believe that the victim tried to parry off his attacker as seen on his right and left arms.


According to the victim's mother, she heard loud noises coming from the room of the victim around 10:30 p.m., but they did not mind this as it was normal for the victim to get in a fit every night.

As early as 6 p.m., the victim was already acting irritated, but again neighbors did not mind him as he always acted different.

Cadoyas said before its crime scene search and investigation, the bedroom was already re-arranged by the family of the victim. He added that they will conduct a follow-up investigation on the incident.

The cadaver of the victim was brought to Angel Funeral Parlor in Calinan.
