In Baguio City last Tuesday, 16-year-old high school student Kenneth Velasco was found covered in his own blood in an alley close to a public high school.
He was declared dead on arrival after the residents of Barangay Labsan rushed the kid to the Baguio General Hospital.
He died due to 40 stab wounds on his chest, neck, nape and other areas, authorities confirm.
"Wala naman siyang kaaway. Di siya kasama sa frat. School at bahay lang talaga siya. Sana sa gumawa nito makonsensya ka. Di mo na lang iniwan yung anak ko ng buhay," his mother Claire told.
Authorities suspect that the student was a victim of robbery due to the loss of his mobile phone and P200 pocket money.
"Parang maliit yung mga saksak sa katawan nung bata nung nakita namin. Baka maliit na knife or ice pick yung ginamit," says his attending physician Dr. Haywood Fernandez.
Authorities continue to investigate the case.
"Sinabi ko sa kanya na wag siyang dadaan 'dun dahil delikado. Kinwento niya kasi na may mga kaklase siyang na hold-up na doon. Kaya sabi ko wag na wag siyang dadaan dun, pero nagtaka ako bakit siya dumaan dun," says his mother.
