TACLOBAN CITY — A 32-year-old senior high school teacher died after he was stabbed by a 19-year-old student in Basey town, Samar on Monday, October 3.
George Lauron, a Science teacher at the Basey National High School, succumbed to a stab wound on his chest, according to Police Executive Master Sergeant Gerry Vargas.

Based on the investigation, Lauron, Lancanan, and other companions had a drinking spree at the boarding house of the victim at about 2 a.m.
“But in the course of their drinking spree, the two had a heated argument which prompted the suspect to stab the victim in his chest using a knife,” Vargas said.

The suspect was detained at the police station pending the filing of a murder case against him at the prosecutor’s office here in Basey.
