Marvin Reglos, the 25-year-old San Beda law student who died because of multiple injuries allegedly caused by hazing has been laid to rest in a public cemetery in Isabela on Saturday, March 3, 2012.
Reglos was identified on February 21, by his relatives. He was brought by two men on board a red Hondy City with plate number WMF 174 last February 19, Sunday night, at the Unciano Medical Center. He was declared dead on arrival.
Reglos sustained severe bruises on several parts of his body as a result of his initiation rites in Lambda Rho Beta fraternity.
Two suspects, alleged fraternity members Erick Edrosolano Castillo, 28; and Bodjie Amorin Yap, 24, were arrested on the same night Reglos was rushed to the hospital after they went back to the hospital, supposedly to check on the victim’s condition.
Police said the case is strong against the suspects after they found from their cellphones several text messages, supposedly from other fraternity members, warning not to speak out on the matter or reveal the identities of those behind the alleged hazing.
The San Beda College of Law, meanwhile, condemned the violent killing of Reglos saying it was an “unlawful and dreadful act of violence.”
Here is a short statement released by the school following the death of Reglos:
“The San Beda College of law condemns the system of brotherhood that employs violence, intimidation, intentional force, or reckless imprudence as part of any of its ceremonies or practices. Consequently, the school does not recognize their existence.”
