Eleazar orders investigation on GenSan media exec’s slay

NATIONAL Police chief Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar ordered on Sunday a thorough investigation into the killing on Friday of a media executive in General Santos City while directing a manhunt against the killers.

“We strongly condemn this incident. I have directed the local police to thoroughly investigate this killing and launch manhunt operations against the perpetrators of this crime,” he said.

Yentez Quintoy, 34, executive director and chief of staff of the Brigada Group of Companies, was gunned down by motorcycle-riding gunmen while she was driving home along NLSA Road in Pook Masunurin, Barangay San Isidro, General Santos City.

The victim was shot at close range by suspects who escaped after the killing.

Eleazar assured that no stone will be left unturned in the investigation and that all angles would be looked into.

“We are looking if the motive into the victim’s killing is job-related, but we are not discounting all other possible angles on this crime,” he said.

The local police will closely coordinate with Quintoy’s family and co-workers as part of the probe. Eleazar urged witnesses to Quintoy’s killing to come forward and give information to authorities that would help in the speedy resolution of the case.

A P1-million reward has been offered by Brigada for anyone who could provide solid information that would lead to the identification and arrest of the media executive’s killers.

The PNP chief also tasked the local police to intensify visibility to prevent the recurrence of violent incidents and ensure the public’s safety from lawless elements.
