A grenade explosion Sunday killed two employees of a spring resort in Sitio Acapulco, Brgy. Mahalang, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental, that was reportedly triggered by old grudges, police chief Supt. Simeon Gane yesterday said.
The victims were identified by the Himamaylan police as Jonathan Sebogero, 34, and his cousin, Ranie Sebogero, 29. Slightly injured was Juni Rey Sebogero, brother of Jonathan.
Initial investigations of the Himamaylan police showed the suspect, identified by an eyewitness as Ronnie Dogomeo, threw the grenade at the victims who were resting in front of the house of Jonathan, without any provocation.
Team Buang blamed
for Team Tatay
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Now there is a “Team Buang (crazy)”.
Yesterday, a text message was circulated in Bacolod City in apparent defense of the five priests of the Diocese of Bacolod, who have been the subject of the “Team Tatay (father)” text messages for allegedly siring children.
The text message yesterday said “we want to defend our priests from the text messages being circulated by ‘Team Buang'.”
It goes on to name two ex-seminarians, one of whom allegedly makes money off of people he fools, who were made to leave the seminary for having mental problems.
