Harris Deguilo Alivio, 39, of Villarosa Subdivision in Tubtubon, Sibulan town, Negros Oriental, a former jail guard, was declared dead past 2 a.m., by Dr. Clay Gumalo. Alivio sustained at least five gunshot wounds.

Initial investigation showed the victim, an asset of the Special Operations Group, arrived at the housing site at about 11 p.m. Oct. 1 to meet with a certain Tata Agui. He would have left a few minutes later, but the headlight of his Honda Econo Power motorcycle malfunctioned and needed to be repaired. A motorcycle mechanic, identified as Rico Sapio, was asked by Alivio to do repairs.moremoremore
