VARIOUS war materials and personal belongings of a soldier who was murdered were recovered by the soldiers in Sitio Ilihan, Barangay Buenavista, Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental on September 23.

"Aside from pinpointing the perpetrators, this will likewise help us in filing additional charges against the murderers," Vinoya added.
