Police close to solving 2007 murder of priest in Philippines
Catholic World News - August 04, 2010
Police in the Philippines have uncovered evidence linking the murder of a Catholic priest in 2007 with five other killings in the same region. The announcement that charges will soon be filed against the suspected killer has relieved some pressure from Church officials who had expressed impatience with the police response to the killings.
Father Florante Rigonan was shot and killed on August 28, 2007, as he left the home of parishioners. Police have now identified the gun that was used in the priest’s killing and in the five other unsolved murders in the northern Ilocos province.
