LEYTE- Slain inmate Raul Yap was buried on Monday afternoon at the Albuera Public Cemetery in Leyte.

A funeral mass was held earlier at the Albuera Parish for Yap.

His widow, Alma, said they have not received any update from investigators looking into the case of her husband's death.

Yap was killed along with Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinosa last November 5 when Criminal Investigation and Detection Group operatives served a search warrant.

Police claim Espinosa resisted authorities which led to a shootout.
