Man severs father’s head, shows it off in streets

[ 256 words|2016.9.14|英字 (English) ]

A 35-year-old man suffering from depression allegedly due to the refusal of his live-in partner's parents for them to get married beheaded his father and showed his head in front of startled residents in Jamindan town, Capiz Monday afternoon.

The suspect, Nick Ocate used a 29-inch bolo in hacking his father, Jose, 60, to death, police said.

"The suspect beheaded and even chopped his father's both hands," Senior Superintendent Samuel Nacion, Capiz provincial director, said in a phone interview with Daily Manila Shimbun.

Father and son were having lunch in their home around seven kilometers from the town, when the suspect grabbed a bolo.

Ocate's horrified mother and four grandchildren locked themselves in a room. The elder Ocate ran outside and shouted for help.

The suspect grabbed his father and attacked him with a bolo, decapitating his head and other body parts.

"There was no provocation. The suspect just became violent," Senior Police Officer Edgar Salinia, the town's deputy police chief, said over the phone.

When police arrived 15 minutes later, Ocate was in the middle of the road around ten meters from his house. He was holding his father's head and the murder weapon.

He surrendered after he saw one of the policemen was his high school classmate.

At the police station, Ocate told investigators he has been depressed since his girlfriend's parents took her away from him.

"The parents refused them to get married because of their different religion," said Salinia.

Police are set to file a parricide case against Ocate on Wednesday. Emmanuel Tupas
