A Grade 10 high school student was found dead in Baguio City just this Tuesday after being robbed and stabbed 40 times according to a report from ABS-CBN.
The 16-year old student who was identified as Kenneth Velasco was pronounced dead on arrival in the Baguio General Hospital by doctors after being rushed by nearby residents who discovered his bloodied body lying near a public high school located in Brgy. Labsan.
Dr. Haywood Fernandez of Baguio General Hospital revealed that Kenneth suffered fatal wounds in the neck, chest, and other parts of his body. According to Kenneth’s mother Claire, he was a hardworking student who had no gang or frat connections.
“Wala naman siyang kaaway. Di siya kasama sa frat. School at bahay lang talaga siya. Sana sa gumawa nito makonsensya ka. Di mo na lang iniwan yung anak ko ng buhay,” she said.
