It's not easy to earn money while you're studying and it's definitely not easy when you're supposed to be the breadwinner of your family. But what happens when the supposed breadwinner also dies on the spot?
In a Facebook post by Lavz Cruz dela Desabille last January 15, a Grade 10 student was allegedly shot when he was out fishing near a private island in Samar province. The victim was identified as Marlo P. Atiga, a 17-year-old student who was supposedly the breadwinner of their family.
Marlo was fishing near Sibugay Island, Tagapula-an when he got shot at close range by an unknown assailant. In the picture, it could be seen that Marlo suffered a gunshot wound on the right eye. The perpetrator claimed that apart from the island itself, they also own the sea surrounding it.
Marlo has been described as a kind and hardworking student who only wanted to help his family by fishing as a means of extra income. The weather was allegedly bad when the incident occurred. The Facebook post said that the suspect is still at large and the police are not doing anything to help capture the killer.
Lavz claimed that Marlo was "napakabait at ulirang bata... walang bisyo. Maisipag [sic] at nag aaral ng [sic] mabuti." She continued, saying "Ang masakit po wala din ginawa ang mga pulis para matulungan ang bata."
In her post, Lavz appealed to the police and the local authorities, saying that justice should be given to the victim and the family left behind. She also said that if the case is ignored and the suspect remains uncaptured, similar tragedies will continue to occur and many more lives will be lost.
What do you think of this case? Do you think Marlo's killer needs to be arrested immediately? What do you think of fishing on or near private islands? Share your thoughts with us!
