Police Colonel Julian Entoma, executive of the Mandaue City Police Office (MCPO), said they are investigating the probability that someone needed to quietness Yap, who was incorporated into the framework of suspected rapture providers in Cebu.
"Particularly nga naay pack o nadam-ag sa delight (Ashley Abad) bowl naay nagdumot niya, dili siya ganahan (mutug-a) sa police. Iyahang inclusion sa rapture, ato ng tan-awon," said Entoma.
Ashley Abad, 19, crumbled amid a pre-Sinulog party on January 19 this year and kicked the bucket due to an overdose of happiness, police said.
Yap is the second asserted provider of joy killed in Cebu for 2019.
The other one was Ken Kenneth Rosales who allegedly kicked the bucket in a shootout between capturing officers in Cebu City last February 22.
Both the names of Yap and Rosales showed up in the network of the alleged Ecstasy Ring in Cebu, which was defined by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA – 7) and Police Regional Office in Central Visayas (PRO – 7).
