Philippine National Police chief General Guillermo Eleazar has directed the Cebu Police Provincial Office to investigate the killing of radio commentator Reynante “Rey” Cortes and immediately arrest the suspect.
Initial investigation showed that Cortes was shot to death the other day by a still unidentified gunman in front of the station DYRB Radyo Pilipino along N. Bacalso Avenue in Barangay Mambaling, Cebu City.
Eleazar said the PNP was calling for justice on the slay of the radio commentator.
He gave assurances police would look into all possible angles in the incident, including threats that the victim might have received.
Police investigators are coordinating with Cortes’ family, friends, and colleagues for information that could shed light on the incident, said Eleazar.
“All angles will be investigated to determine the motive in the crime, especially if this was related to his profession. The local police will also investigate if there were threats to his life prior to the incident,” Eleazar said.
