“Wa ko katingog kay pag gawas nako abi nako og wa nila patya pero gipatay diay. Wa ko kadawat (I was dumbstruck when I got outside the house because I thought they didn’t kill my son, but they did),” said his mother 76-year-old Filomena Rafanan..

She said she even asked the operatives not to harm her son.

“Sir, if he had committed a crime, take him and put him in jail. That way, we can still visit him, but please don’t harm him,” she recalled telling one of them.

Junior’s sister Yolanda Fernandez, 53, mourned the loss of the only boy in their family and their youngest sibling.

“If he was guilty, then they could have just arrested him because we were willing to give him up,” she said in Cebuano.
