Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Front Page -

THE top of­fi­cial of the Po­lice Re­gional Of­fice-North­ern Min­danao (PRO-10) yes­ter­day or­dered the ac­ti­va­tion of a Spe­cial In­ves­ti­ga­tion Task Group (SITG) that will probe the killing of an ex­ec­u­tive judge in Oza­mis City.

PRO-North­ern Min­danao di­rec­tor Chief Su­per­in­ten­dent Ti­mo­teo Pa­cleb has con­demned the sense­less killing of Ex­ec­u­tive Judge Ed­mundo Pin­tac of Oza­miz City Re­gional Trial Court even as he di­rected in­ves­ti­ga­tors to speed­ily solve the case. Pin­tac was gunned down by still uniden­ti­fied mo­tor­cy­cle-rid­ing as­sailants in Barangay Banadero while on his way home, Mon­day

af­ter­noon, Oct. 8. Po­lice said Pin­tac sus­tained six gun­shot wounds on his head and body. He was rushed to the hos­pi­tal but did not get there alive.

Ini­tial in­ves­ti­ga­tion dis­closed that the vic­tim was pos­si­bly driv­ing alone and the sus­pects just wait­ing for the right tim­ing.

Pin­tac was re­port­edly han­dling one of the cases of the Paro­jinogs in Oza­mis City.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors have yet to de­ter­mine the iden­tity of the sus­pects and the mo­tive of the killing.

Misamis Oc­ci­den­tal provin­cial po­lice di­rec­tor Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Em­manuel He­bron is also work­ing with the lo­cal govern­ment unit and other pri­vate in­di­vid­u­als or groups for a pos­si­ble rais­ing of re­ward money for any in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to the ar­rest of the per­pe­tra­tors.
