Lambda Beta Rho frat leader faces raps in hazing death

/ 09:42 PM February 26, 2012

The Antipolo police will soon file charges against the leader of the fraternity believed to be responsible for the death through hazing of San Beda law student Marvin Reglos as an official said there was enough evidence to link Eduardo Escobal II to the case.

“Everyone in the fraternity is a suspect, especially their Grand Rhoan,” Senior Inspector Ronald Zamora, head of the Antipolo police investigation unit, said Sunday.

As the highest official of the Lambda Beta Rho Fraternity, Escobal holds the title of “Grand Rhoan.” On Friday, he went to the National Bureau of Investigation where he denied any involvement in the initiation rites held last week in Antipolo City where Reglos, 25, was killed.

Escobal was later allowed to go home because officials said that he was not yet a suspect.

According to Zamora, the police will file a supplemental complaint for the inclusion of Escobal and 15 other suspects whom they have already identified.

“The evidence we have now is enough to file charges against them,” he added.

Earlier, the police filed charges against San Sebastian College

students Erick Castillo and Bodjie Yap who remain detained at the Antipolo police headquarters. Also charged were Arjay Gregana, Juffali Abdula and several John Does who remain at large.

All of them are facing murder charges in relation to the Anti-Hazing Law which, according to the police, is a nonbailable offense.

Zamora added that after some verification, they were able to confirm that the red Honda City which was used by several men to bring Reglos to Unciano Medical City was owned by Escobal’s father.

The police went to Escobal’s house in Las Piñas City last week to inquire about the red car but they were told that the Escobals were no longer staying there while the car had been sold to someone else.

“Now, we have witnesses who will prove Escobal was there during the hazing. We are just readying the information and we will file a case against him and the others soon,” he said.
