Gang member's body dumped in Cebu cemetery | 04/05/2009 7:31 PM

An alleged gang member was killed and dumped in a cemetery in Talisay City, Cebu province, Saturday morning.

Talisay City police said the victim, at least 20-years-old and had a gang tattoo, was dumped by his killers at the Evergreen Cemetery in Barangay San Roque.

Village watchman Renante Rabaya told police that joggers called his attention around 6:25 a.m. after spotting what seems to be a man's body stuffed in a garbage bag.

Police initially said the victim was a member of the Alpha Kappa Rho (AKRHO) fraternity because of a tattoo on his right hand.

Richard Buscayno, the fraternity's president in Cebu, however, said he did not recognize the victim. He said the man could have been a member of a local gang, whose members are known for wearing silver accessories.

The victim, who remained unidentified by police, was also wearing a red sweat shirt and black short pants.

Crime scene investigators said the victim died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Police have yet to determine the motive for the killing. -- report from Carine Asutilla, ABS-CBN Cebu
