Thursday, February 13, 2014
A 27-YEAR-OLD man was stabbed to death allegedly by his brother who suspected him of having an affair with his wife before dawn yesterday in Barangay Bangbang, Cordova, Cebu.
Gary Pardillo, a jobless resident of Purok Dos, Barangay Bangbang, suffered a stab wound in his back and one below his chest.
Police are searching for his brother Richard, a 39-year-old taxi driver residing in Sitio Timpolok, Barangay Babag, Lapu-Lapu City, who allegedly fled with his wife after the stabbing.
SPO2 Lorenzo Wagwag of the Cordova Police Station said the brothers were heard arguing in the victim’s house in Purok Dos before the incident.
When homicide investigators arrived at the crime scene, Gary was lying on his back. They recovered a broken knife, which is now with the Police Regional Office Crime Laboratory.
Wagwag said the suspect went to the police station last year to report that his brother, who was single, ran away with his wife.
“We are looking at love triangle as the motive of the crime,” Wagwag said.
