Dumaguete policemen are still establishing the motive for the killing of a German national inside his house in Purok Mapahiyumon, Barangay Cantil-e, Dumaguete City, on Feb. 14.
Chief Insp. Josephine Llena of the PNP Scene of the Crime Operatives Unit said the body of Frank Bolkhard, 50, was brought to the Garden of Saints Funerals Homes in Brgy. Camanjac, Dumaguete, where an autopsy has been conducted.
The victim was found by two house helpers bathed in blood and sprawled on the floor near the stairway. Initial police investigation showed that Bolkhard sustained a gaping neck wound, lacerated wound on his left wrist and multiple stab wounds on the chest and abdomen.
Bolkhard’s cellphone and wallet were found missing. A kitchen knife was also found covered with a blue hand towel in the sink and is believed to have been used in killing the victim.
The victim was married to Filipina Niezel Flores Bolkhard, who was in Germany when the incident occurred.
A task force has been formed to conduct follow-up investigations on the case.*RG
