PAGUDPUD, Ilocos Norte, Jan. 22– A great teacher is gone. He is Alejandro Malapit, 50, head teacher of Burayoc elementary school in this town, who was found dead inside his room in Brgy. Ligaya here at 7 o’clock this morning.
Responding lawmen led by C/Inspector Samson Amistad, police chief, said the victim succumbed to fatal blow on the head as per finding by rural health unit officer Dra. Zapanta.
Amistad said the victim’s cadaver was bloodied, his room wall was splattered with blood, valuables in the room were in disarray, also a black bonnet and men’s underwear were found at the crime scene.
Amistad theorized that the suspect first bludgeoned the victim to death and then looted the teacher’s cellphone, laptap and bag. SOCO team said there was no sign of forced entry at the victim’s room.
The victim’s yellow-colored Mio motorcycle was also missing. The suspect probably escaped using the victim’s motorbike as getaway vehicle, the police chief said.
