Deputy police chief found dead in Tacloban City

TACLOBAN CITY—A police official of San Isidro town in Leyte province was found dead in a vacant lot near the office of the Department of Budget and Management-Eastern Visayas (DBM-8) in Barangay Marasbaras here on Tuesday morning.

SPO4 Ruben Dennis Diaz, 47, deputy police chief of San Isidro town, suffered a gunshot wound in the right temple. An empty shell of a caliber 9mm pistol was found beside the victim’s body when the police went to the area at 6:05 a.m. to investigate.

Chief Insp. Alex Echon, Tacloban City Police Office station 1 chief, said a team of policemen was sent to the area after receiving a call from a concerned citizen about the presence of a body on the grassy portion near the DBM-8.

He said that while Diaz was assigned in San Isidro town, he was staying at the house of his brother-in-law in Marasbaras.

Echon said the victim’s body was found several meters away from the house of his brother-in-law.

Insp. Maranito Sabayo, San Isidro police chief, said they were shocked upon hearing what happened to Diaz whom he described as a good policeman with no known enemies.
