Initial reports said that at around 8:30 am, Sunday, Cristeta, Dok Ting’s sister, called him and asked him to come out of his room and join them for breakfast. When there was no reply, the sister asked Dok Ting’s driver to go the room to wake him up. It was the driver who first found out that Dok Ting was killed.

Calapan police chief Lieutenant Colonel Danilo Cruz said the victim’s room was a mess, with his belongings scattered all over. Cruz said this indicated that the room had been searched.

Cruz also confirmed to Rappler that Dok Ting’s jewelry were not in the room. The cops were still determining if there were other valuables missing.

Investigators also found out the closed circuit television of the house was tampered and its mother board, which stored recorded videos, was missing.

The police are looking at two angles of the killing. First, that the victim and suspect were familiar with each other. The other, that this is a robbery.

Cruz said they were also looking at the possibility that the suspect killed the dentist while stealing those valuables.
