FULL TEXT: Facebook Messenger chat of alleged Aegis Juris fraternity members

MANILA, Philippines – The screenshots of a Facebook Messenger thread posted last Wednesday, September 20, in the Facebook group "Hustisya Para kay Horacio" have gone viral.

Horacio is Horacio Tomas Castillo III, the law freshman who died from hazing injuries after he was initiated by the Aegis Juris, a fraternity recognized by and based at the University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Civil Law. 

Below is a transcript of the group chat, involving 7 men believed to be members of the fraternity. The conversation was supposed to have occured from Saturday morning, September 16, to Sunday morning, September 17.

On Friday, September 22, primary suspect John Paul Solano surrendered to the Manila Police and admitted that he was the "Popoy" towards the end of the captured chat. The men in the conversation talked about contacting Popoy to attend to an "emergency," with Popoy later sending them a message that he was left in the hospital, presumably with the neophyte. (Solano had surfaced as the one who supposedly found Castillo's body and brought him to the Chinese General Hospital.)
