Cañete murder suspects identified
The Cebu Provincial Police said they have leads in the suspects responsible for the murder of the uncle of Liloan Mayor Vincent Franco “Duke” Frasco in barangay Poblacion last Tuesday.
Senior Supt. Patrocinio Comendador Jr., Cebu provincial police chief, said they reviewed footage taken by a closed circuit TV camera of the incident which occurred at a store near the victim’s home.
He said the killers were gun-for-hire. Comendador said they are also identifying other criminal personalities from Danao City.
Cañete was reading a newspaper outside a store when he was shot in the head.
The gunman fled on a motorcycle driven by a cohort. Witnesses said the assailants were already in the area a few minutes before the attack. Cañete was declared dead at the Perpetual Succour Hospital in Cebu City.
The victim was the campaign manager of Frasco and was also the secretary-general of the mayor’s local party named Democracy of the Independent Liberal and Conservative. Cañete is survived by his wife Lisa and their two children, Katrina and Carlo.
