2 men shot dead in Basay,
link to girl's rape-slay eyed
Police in Basay, Negros Oriental, are investigating a possible connection between the shooting to death of two men early yesterday and the rape-slay of a seven-year-old girl in the town on New Year's Eve.
Revenge as a result of public outrage over the rape-slay of the girl is now being eyed as the motive for the killing of Peve Neil Pamaypay, 17, and Mansueto Maban Supatan, 51.
Initial police report said that at around 4 a.m. yesterday, Pamaypay and Supatan were shot at close range while they were asleep inside a hut owned by Juditho Utzurrum in Purok 2, Poblacion, Basay.
