CEBU CITY, Philippines – The Police Regional Office in Central Visayas (PRO-7) is a step closer to determine whether the man who was shot dead in Quezon City is indeed self-confessed drug lord, Franz Sabalones.

Director Brigadier General Debold Sinas, chief of PRO-7, said they are trying to obtain an electronic copy of the fingerprint of Sabalones from the records of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in San Fernando town.

Sabalones is from the town of San Fernando, located 41 kilometres from Cebu City.

Sinas said they will compare Sabalones’ fingerprint record from the Comelec with the post mortem fingerprint recorded in Manila.

Sinas is looking at filing a request letter on Wednesday, May 1, addressed to the Comelec so that the PRO-7 can obtain a copy of the fingerprint record and compare it with the police data.

“Kun mapirmahan nako tong request, pwede na siguro mi magcompare… just to determine kun ang katong namatay didto, mao gyud si Franz Sabalones,” said Sinas in a press conference held Tuesday, April 30, 2019.

(We might be able to compare both data soon when I can sign the request letter…just to determine whether the man, who died in Quezon City is indeed Franz Sabalones.)

During the press conference, Sinas said Sabalones is the head of a drug network and they are working on verifying information as to who is the next person in line.

Sinas said Sabalones has several people working under him and any one of them can be the next head of the network.

Sabalones was reportedly killed by still unknown assailants in Quezon City past midnight of April 18, 2019.
