The brazen attack, also known as the “Pamplona massacre,” brought national attention to the long-running problem of unsolved killings in Negros Island.
The death toll in the massacre rose to 10 on Saturday, May 6, when Fredilino Cafe Jr. died two months after he sustained a gunshot wound.
Dela Rosa previously called the killings in Negros Oriental a “reign of terror.”
