Police investigators have identified the person whose burned body was found on a vacant lot in Camacawan area near Indahag, Cagayan de Oro City.
Radio reports indicate that the victim was Marjun Mejos whose name was found inside a pouch in his pocket. He was reportedly a BS Criminology student of Cagayan de Oro College (COC-Phinma). Investigators also found several head and back wounds indicating he was beaten and repeatedly stabbed by his killers.
A Facebook photo of the victim (left, below) was shared by a netizen and coincidentally showed he was wearing the same t-shirt when he was found. His burnt motorcycle was also found at the scene which is under a tree and beside the road.
Police officers discovered the body while jogging in the area Friday morning.
The incident occurred just a few days after a COC-Phinma graduate died of heatstroke while undergoing training at PNP Academy in Cavite.
