A HOMICIDE case was filed against a gay man who allegedly killed a foreign tourist in Boracay Island in Malay, Aklan.
Superintendent Antonio Dizon confirmed that they filed the case against Carlito Alegado alias Kallee, 21, a native of Cebu City and a member of an LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning/queer) group in the island.
“Our investigation showed that the killing was not premeditated, thus the homicide charge,” Dizon said.
Alegado was charged morning of Jan. 12, 2019 before the Aklan Provincial Prosecutors Office.
Dizon also revealed that the victim was already identified.
And he’s not Korean as what police earlier thought.
He was identified as Shenglin Hong, 30, a Chinese national from Jilin Province. He was staying at Paradise Garden Resort when the stabbing episode happened.
Dizon said they went to Paradise Resort to investigate. It was later learned that the victim was with his four siblings and all are billeted in the said resort.
Hong was found on the pavement at the main road in front of Budget Naet at Sitio Ambulong, Barangay Manoc-Manoc around 3:05 a.m. of Jan. 11.
He was brought to Metropolitan Doctors Medical Clinic but was declared dead six minutes later due to three stab injuries on the body.
Alegado was arrested in a hot pursuit operation.
Reports showed that the suspect and the victim met at a resort in the island 1:00 p.m. of Thursday.
He allegedly asked for the Chinese’s We Chat account.
Alegado fetched the victim and brought to his boarding house in Sitio Ambulong.
Along with another LGBTQ pal, he claimed to have entertained the victim.
But it wasn’t long before the foreigner learned that he was dealing with gay men.
A heated argument ensued between them as the victim refused to pay P3,000, which they earlier agreed on.
The disappointed foreigner bolted out of the room but Alegado ran after him.
The suspect allegedly stabbed the victim thrice.
The Chinese man managed to run until he fell to the pavement.
Alegado fled after the incident but was eventually arrested
