Manhunt for cop killers will not stop until culprits are behind bars – Police

The manhunt for those who killed Police Corporal Ryan Langudio Baculi during a buy-bust operation in Cebu City, will never stop until the killers are behind bars.

This was the promise of Police Lieutenant Colonel Gerard Ace Pelare, spokesperson of the Police Regional Office in Central Visayas.

Baculi was gunned down by suspected drug dealers when the latter sensed that they were dealing with a police officer during a drug sting last November 15.

Pelare assured the public that they are still conducting a dedicated operation in order to give justice to the multi-awarded police officer who lost his life while performing his duties.

He added that they have received reports that the alleged killers, Atong Rafols and Ramil Salazar, are still hiding in Cebu City four weeks after they shot and killed Baculi in Sitio Pagtambayayong, Barangay Kinasang-an, Cebu City.
