CARCAR CITY, Cebu – An alleged drug addict hacked his two nieces to death using a bolo and then killed himself by slashing his throat, police said yesterday.
The incident that occurred in Sitio Kalangyawon, Barangay Napo, Carcar City, shocked the small communities although sources said the parents of the girls should have taken precautions considering that the suspect is a well-known illegal drugs user.
The victims, Rosalyn Mangyao, 16, and her sister Chairmain, 11, were found dead with hack wounds in their heads. The suspect, their uncle, Domingo, 29, was also found dead apparently after he committed suicide.
The police said the two girls were left shortly in the care of Domingo as their parents were in a neighbors house to pray for a relative who recently died.
The suspect even cooked dinner for the family before the parents of the victims left.
Domingo was staying with the family after his release from jail last September. Domingo was jailed after holding a girl hostage.
The police said Charmain suffered a wound in the neck while Rosalyn had a wound in the chest and neck. Both of the victims’ heads barely clung to their necks.
