A SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD boy, who was linked to a drug trade, was killed by at least two men in Sacsac village in Bacong, Negros Oriental Thursday evening.
The victim identified as Ferdie Clark Tinam-isan was shot in his forehead by the two men using a .45 caliber pistol. Tinam-isan was rushed to the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital but was declared dead.
Personnel of the Scene of the Crime Operatives (Soco) recovered empty shells and slugs of .45 caliber pistol and some stick of marijuana cigarettes.
The victim’s aunt told reporters that Tinam-isan was linked to drug trade. She said the victim served as the "bread and butter" of his two younger twins after their mother left them.
The victim’s mother reportedly left for Manila few years ago after her husband served his sentence for raping a niece.
The victim was earlier detained for drug pushing, but was released because he was a minor. (Victor L. Camion)
