CALASIAO – The reward of one hundred thousand pesos to people who could pin point the killers of a businessman in Dagupan City has been announced by the deceased daughter.
Charisse Victorio, a former reporter of GMA-7 TV in Northern Luzon, said that anybody who has knowledge for Rolando Gonzales Victorio’s killing could contact this town’s police station.
She cited that her sixty two years old father suffered five stab wounds on his neck and chest from an unknown killer inside his sport utility vehicle in Barangay Mancup here.
She said her father's shoulder bag that contained his cellphone, papers, and tens of thousands of pesos was taken by the male and female assailants.
Chief Inspector Rizalino Suarez cited that on or about 9:15 pm of January 28, 2017, Gary Castro, a tricycle driver and resident of the village, informed the police of a blooded body inside the vehicle parked at Sitio Nagsangaan of the barangay.
“He saw a male and female persons alighted from it and then boarded a motorcycle and left towards the direction of San Carlos City,” Suarez cited the spot report.
He said that Victorio was brought by the personnel of this town’s Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council to the nearby Pangasinan Provincial Hospital in San Carlos City, Pangasinan but was pronounced dead by the physician there.
Both Suarez and the deceased daughter said the police stare at a blank wall to the identities of the perpetrators.
“Tinitingnan namin about doon sa business transaction kasi nagpapautang iyan may mga transaction na hinde alam ng family niya. Tinitingnan namin baka may kuneksiyon din or may relasyon sila,” Suarez said.
He said that the wife of Victorio told policemen that at 6 pm of that fateful day, Rolando called her from Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija that he was bound to their house in Barangay Bonuan Gueset in Dagupan City.
The family learned about the brutal incident after Suarez saw that he knew personally the cadaver.
The deceased is the cousin of retired police general Wilson Victorio who lives in San Quintin, Pangasinan.
