ORMOC CITY– Police are still on a manhunt for the killing of a former jail guard.
This was disclosed by Police Capt. Romeo Caones, police chief of Calubian town, Leyte.
To recall, Emmanuel Vicera, a former jail guard of Biliran Provincial Jail was shot dead by a still unidentified suspect while he was riding on a motorcycle last April 12 in Barangay Agas, Calubian town.

“Actually, we don’t know the motive of the suspect in this shooting incident. In the first place, the victim is not from here. We will conduct a background check on the victim as part of the probe,” Caones said in an interview.

Capt. Caones disclosed that the victim was seated at the back of a single motorcycle driven by a friend when the suspect who casually passed by shot him once hitting his left forehead which resulted for his instant death.

It was learned that the victim was a former jail guard of Biliran Provincial Jail and was laid off in 2019. After his termination, he engaged in business. (ROBERT DEJON)
