DESPITE the P2 million reward, there are no leads to crack the murder of Chinese businessman Henry Lao.
Mayor Maurico Domogan noted the search for Lao’s killers have faced a blank wall since his murder a year ago.
“All the leads to the case have turned negative,” noted the mayor.
On December 2015, the city was rocked by the brutal slay of a Chinese Filipino businessman when he was found dead inside his home.
Lao was found lifeless in an apparent murder, suffering multiple stab wounds inside his residence in barangay Ferdinand.
The 68 – year - old is more prominently known to own various businesses in the city, which includes the chain of Tiong San department stores aside from hotels and other business in the city.
Neighbors heard loud noises the night before the murder and saw an unidentified male coming out of the Lao residence but police found no signs of forced entry inside the home of the businessman.
The absence of a close circuit television (CCTV) camera inside and outside his house have proved to be a major setback in the resolution of the case.
Police have no leads to this day as to the whereabouts of the Lao killers.
The Guardians Reform Advocacy for Cooperation and Economic Prosperity, Inc. (GRACE-Guardian) has earlier culled a P1 million reward to whoever can provide leading to the solving of the murder coupled with money from other private sources with the bounty totaling to P2 million.
