POLICE Lieutenant Lanie Deriada, chief of Police Station 9, was relieved from her post effective Tuesday, February 23, 2021.

Deriada was replaced by Police Major Ritchie Gohee from Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) headquarters.

The relief order was signed by BCPO director Colonel Manuel Placido.

Gohee, who received the order on Wednesday, said Thursday that there will be a turnover of command Friday at Police Station 9 to be led by the BCPO director.

He said Deriada was reassigned to the City Police Strategy Management Unit in BCPO.

Meanwhile, Gohee said the man who was found dead floating approximately 7 nautical miles off the coast of Bacolod City in the waters of the Guimaras Strait on Wednesday remained unidentified.

He said the victim, who was in his mid-20s, was already bloated.

Charlie Chavez, the fisherman who brought the remains to the shoreline of Barangay Sum-ag in Bacolod City, earlier said he along with another fisherman in a separate motor banca found the remains around 8:20 a.m.

He said he immediately tied a rope around the victim's leg and started pulling it slowly to Bacolod City. Upon arrival at the docks of the Sum-ag fishing port, he immediately notified members of Police Station 9.

Gohee said the remains were still at Villanueva funeral parlor in Barangay Mansilingan.
