From the Manila Bulletin (Apr 11, 2020): Remains of NPA medic recovered in Davao de Oro (By Mike Crismundo)

The abandoned body of a regional medical staff of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP)-New People’s Army (NPA) Southern Mindanao Regional Committee (SMRC) was recovered by government security forces at a the cliff in Sitio Ibuan, Barangay Tagdangua, Pantukan, Davao de Oro, on Thursday, the Army reported late Friday afternoon.

“The cadaver was found after a concerned villager reported to the joint forces of the 71st Infantry (Kaibigan) Battalion (71 st IB) and PNP 1101st Regional Mobile Force Battalion,” said 71 st IB Civil Military Operations (CMO) officer Second Lt. Kim S. Carlos in a statement sent to The Manila Bulletin on Friday.

Carlos also said, together with the Purok Chairman of that same barangay, the government security forces proceeded to the area to retrieve the cadaver, and later brought this to Delta Company Headquarters at Sitio Upper Lahi, Barangay Magnaga, Pantukan for verification.

A certain “Aka Dodong”, a former rebel, positively identified the dead NPA member as “Nevy” or “Ricky”, a member of the Regional Medical Staff of the CPP- NPA SMRC. He was reportedly wounded in an encounter with government troops on Tuesday, April 7, according to Carlos.
