Cyrish Magalang, 20-year-old female, a cum laude graduate from the College of Tourism and Hospitality Management in University of Santo Tomas (UST) in Bacoor, Cavite was murdered and found dead on Wednesday October 31, 2012 reports philstar.com.

Police arrested the suspects identified as Rolin Gacita, 27, and his brother Roel, 24, both residents of Molino 3 in Bacoor.
The two were identified by witnesses in the brutal killing of Magalang on Wednesday, as she was last seen around 11 pm, October 30, boarding the tricycle driven by one of the suspects-Roel, after buying puto bungbong, a native rice cake.
The screwdriver allegedly used in the murder, the blood-stained concrete hollow block used in bashing the victims head, and the mangled puto bungbong were recovered at the crime scene, as well as the victims personal belongings at the suspects residence by Police.
The two suspects were arrested, charged with robbery with homicide and are now behind bars, the article said.
May she rest in peace.
Another innocent life lost to another gruesome murder committed by individuals who think alcohol, drugs and robbery would be a ticket for them to easily forget their life’s troubles and miseries. They were sadly mistaken with grave consequences.
Another bitter twist of irony
A year ago, around 6:30 am, October 11, 2011, Given Grace Cebanico, a 19 years old, third year Computer Science student of University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) Laguna also suffered a similar fate (raped and murdered by two suspects) as she was found dead in a canal by residents.
Given Grace Cebanico – 19 yrs old – Murdered October 11, 2011 – UPLB – killed with a handgun
Cyrish Magalang – 20 yrs old -Murdered October 31, 2012 – UST – killed with a Screwdriver
Coincidence? it makes us think, hope there won’t be a next…
Jay Solano – 15 yrs old – Murdered October 18, 2013 – DLNHS – killed with a knife
Anria Galang Espiritu – 26 yrs old – Murdered August 14, 2014 – killed with a Screwdriver
Like Given Grace that was murdered by the suspects responsible, for a girl named Cyrish… “ay walang ka-awang-awang pinatay sa isang karumal-dumal na krimen, sa halip na binigyan ng lahat ng respeto dahil siya ay “Ma-galang”.
Rolin said, “I managed to pull her pants down but I did not rape her”.
Rolin insisted, “I alone made plans to just rob the victim and let my brother tag along”
Rolin said, “We bought took shabu!”
And Roel said, “my brother Rolin is innocent, I was the brains and I acted alone”
Never in control
If someone will do drugs, think it’s cool, go bragging and telling themselves, “They’re in control”… and if someone comes up telling them “it’s never good,” well, you know we’ll never hear the end of it…
The moment you start letting drugs into your system, unknowingly, you slowly let it bring about changes in your way of thinking, and your deteriorating “utok bolinao” will go from making you do something stupid, to doing something crazy, to doing something that makes you cross the line.
You will never be in control once you start doing drugs. It only leads to getting wasted, brain damage, self-destruction and destroying other peoples lives.
The suspects admitted “they were under the influence of drugs, lost control of themselves which lead them to commit the crime”.
(utok = brain of or having the wits of …, bolinao = is a common Tagalog name for a small fish belonging to the “monamon” species. So the expression “utok bolinao” = a dimwit).
