Bingao-Paoay border road: dumping ground of bodies

SAN NICOLAS, Ilocos Norte, Sept. 5–In many instances in the past, several bodies of suspected salvage victims were found dumped in the border road between Brgy. Bingao, this town and Paoay road going to Suba. So it was not a surprise when a certain Stephen, a passerby, stumbled this morning on a bloodied lifeless person lying on the roadside of the said area. When San Nicolas police investigated the killing, one of their fellow cops recognized the victim being his town mate. They quickly notified his relatives who positively identified him as Florante Jose, 67, of Brgy. Esperanza, Vintar, Ilocos Norte. The body bore bullet wounds in the chest, head and back, investigators said.
