The tragic killing of lawyer Martiniano Cornelio in his own home in barangay Bantayan was a big shock not only to the peace-loving residents of the City of Gentle People but of the entire Dumaguete City community worldwide.{{more}}

Were it not for cooperative neighbors who gave information to the police, this killing would have gone down in history as just another unsolved crime.

Now the community can take credit for solving this dastardly crime with the identification of the suspect. At the time this paper was going to the press, the police were still tracking down the suspect, who has been positively identified after he was confirmed to be in possession of the victim’s cellular phone.

We share the community’s hope that he would have been arrested and brought before the bar of justice at this time.
We extend our sympathies with the Cornelio family over their great loss. But in true Yin and Yang fashion, this tragedy is also bringing out the best of Dumaguetenos who have come together to help in the solution of the crime.
Peace and Order is not just the concern of the victims or of our elected officials. It is a community concern. This is a shared responsibility.

The cooperation of the citizenry in solving this crime should serve as an inspiration and hope for the victims of Dumaguete’s unsolved killings.

We continue to look forward to the realization of this dream.
