One of the suspects in the death of University of Santo Tomas (UST) law student Horacio Tomas “Atio” Castillo III has left the country, according to the Bureau of Immigration.

Immigration spokesperson Maria Antonette Mangrobang said in a text message Thursday that their records showed that a certain Ralph Caballes Trangia left the country on Sept. 19, two days after Castillo’s body was brought to the Chinese General Hospital in Manila.


Trangia, who left on board Eva Air flight BR262 bound for Taipei, is one of 16 people covered by an Immigration Lookout Bulletin Order (ILBO) issued by Aguirre on Wednesday.

A person subject of an ILBO cannot leave the country unless they secure a clearance from the Department of Justice (DOJ).


Trangia is reportedly an official of the Aegis Juris fraternity in UST.

Police believe that Castillo died during hazing rites of the fraternity.

“The rest (of the suspects) appears to still be in the country or do not have enough information on their identity to ascertain if they are the same person as the one appearing in BI records,” Mangrobang said.

Following are the Immigration records of other Aegis Juris members subject to the ILBO:

* Arvin R. Balag arrived last April 17, 2017. No record of departure;
