FIVE men were found with their throats slit in separate areas yesterday morning in Caloocan City.
The bodies of two unidentified men, both described as about 20 to 30 years old -- one was wearing
white T-shirt and blue short pants while the other was wearing stripe T-shirt and gray pants were
discovered before 6 a.m. by a transport network vehicle service driver sprawled on a dimly lit portion
of EDSA in front of Sogo Hotel in Bgy. 137, Bagong Barrio.
A cardboard with a written words that reads “Lugar namin ito, wag kayo dito, susunod na kayo”
followed by names of certain “Oca, Gidoy, Jerome, Carlo Intsik, Sylex, Daboy and Roniel was found on
top of the victim’s bodies.
Caloocan police chief Senior Supt. Jemar Modequillo believed that the threatening words on the
cardboard served as a warning to some people who were trying to engage in illegal activities in the
territory of their adversaries.
At around 6 a.m., another dead body of a man, with his throat slit was discovered along
Tawilis St., Dagat-Dagatan Ext., Bgy. 28. The victim, wearing white sleeveless shirt and denim pants
was believed killed somewhere and dumped in the area to mislead police investigators.

watchmen in Bustamante Street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenue, Bgy. 43, while another unidentified victim
