Dead boy found
buried in mud

An epileptic boy was found dead and buried in mud at the shoreline of Brgy. Singcang-Airport in Bacolod City yesterday.

The fatality was identified as Bryan Guardario, 12, of Yulo’s Park in Brgy. 13, Bacolod, by case investigator Police Officer 2 Art Zureta of Police Station 8.

Barangay Captain Rosenie Distrito said he was informed that Guardario was found lying on his stomach by several children, who were collecting sea shells at the shoreline of Purok 6 in Sitio Magsungay in the barangay, at about 10:45 a.m.

Guardario’s uncle, Ryan, said his nephew was last seen alive at about 3 p.m. riding on a bike with another boy, whose name he did not disclose.

He said his nephew had failed to come home since Sunday and he was informed by a neighbor that the body of a boy had been found.

Ryan said he believes his nephew did not die of drowning but was beaten to death, and his body thrown into the ocean to conceal the crime, because blood was coming out from the boy’s nose and mouth.

Although Guardario’s body was already bloated, no visible wounds were found on it, Zureta said.

The body will be subjected to autopsy to ascertain whether he was killed or had accidentally drowned, Zureta also said.

The case has been referred to the Bacolod City Police Women’s and Children’s Complaint’s Desk for further investigation.*APN
