ORMOC CITY– A man was found dead inside a KTV bar here where he worked as a caretaker with the police eyeing love triangle as a possible angle.

Lemuel Tapalla,47 and single, was discovered with stabbed wounds in the different parts of his body last Thursday(Feb.2) at about 9 pm inside a KTV bar located in Barangay District 5, this city.

Case investigator Police Cpl. Sherwin Silvano in an interview disclosed that their station received a call from a concerned citizen that there was a stabbing incident at the said KTV Bar.

He said that they immediately proceeded to say the place and learned based on the testimonies that the said victim was with a woman in one of the rooms of the said establishment.

Silvano further said quoting some witnesses, that at about 8:55 pm, an unidentified man wearing a black jacket arrived at the desk and asked if his wife was at the said place.
Suddenly the suspect went to Room 3 and stabbed the victim several times causing him to fall to the floor. After the incident, the suspect immediately fled.
