MANILA, Philippines—The bullet-riddled body of a 28-year-old carpenter was found early Sunday in Quezon City, several hours after he received a text message seeking a predawn tryst.
The body of Alfie Tuazon, of Major Marcos Street in Barangay (village) Pasong Tamo, was found with multiple bullet wounds at around 5 a.m. Sunday in front of a house along Freedom Street in Barangay Pasong Tamo.
Senior Police Officer 1 Joselito Gagaza, of the Quezon City Police District Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit (QCPD-CIDU), said that three hours before the discovery at around 2 a.m., Tuazon had received a text message on his mobile phone from a “Boy Abra” who wanted to meet with him, prompting the carpenter to go out.
Gagaza said that Tuazon’s body was discovered slumped on the pavement by a resident in the area who immediately sought the help of barangay officials.
The case investigator pointed out that Tuazon had apparently been gunned down at the place where he was found based on four bullet casings and a slug from a 9mm pistol recovered at the site.
Gagaza said that they are in the process of determining the real name of “Boy Abra,” who apparently lured the victim out of his house, and are conducting follow-up operations to establish the motive behind the killing.
