MANILA – The body of beautician named Louie Idona was found on the sidewalk of A. Bonifacio, Brgy. Balingsa in Quezon City Friday morning.
Preliminary reports say that the body of the 26-year old sustained many stab wounds, most of which were deep.
The victim’s belongings were found scattered all around him, indicating that he tried to fight his attacker.
Authorities said that the victim may have been held up.
Faustino Torres, a witness to the incident said that at around two in the morning, he saw a man hurriedly running and immediately suspected there may have been a robbery.
“May narinig lang akong sumigaw, tapos may nakita akong lalaki lumundag doon sa center island. Sabi ko ‘Baka holdap ito,’ kaya tinawag ko yung mga gasoline boy."
Meanwhile, the victim’s mother Lourdes Idona still can't believe what happened to her son.
“Gabi-gabi kasi lumalabas yan eh, kasama ‘yung mga kaibigan niyang bakla. Sinabihan ko na nga ‘yan na mag-ingat sa mga holdaper," she said.
Police are investigating if there is more to the case than just a robbery.
