Surigao City: 10/9/2014

 

Early morning radio report: A Swiss National named John Lennon (nickname "Nono") was found shot to death in his hotel room by the Surigao City PNP this morning. The radio reported this morning that there is presently no suspects and that the PNP are presently going through his emails looking for leads.

 

I have requested more information on the case and I will post more information when it comes available.

 

 

The following Update was provided by forum member "Danishman". I decided to post the news report here in the OP.

 

Police identified the victim as Florian Mayer, 23, of Geneva, GMA News stringer Natz Corbeta reported.

Mayer's body was found dumped in a rice field at Barangay Togbongon in Surigao City. A witness saw the body at about 8 a.m.

An autopsy showed the victim had a stab wound in the chest as well as laceration wounds in the neck. There were also signs of strangulation.

The victim likewise bore head injuries that suggested he may have been hit with a blunt object.

A separate report on MindaNews said police also found Mayer’s wallet with the driver’s license, credit cardsarrow-10x10.png, a condom, an iPhone, a cigarette lighter, a SIM card, and a pack of cigarettes.

Found on the victim's body were a gold necklace and white gold bracelet.

An investigation showed Mayer checked in at an inn Monday, with a male companion who checked in as “John Lennon” but is nowhere to be found.

Police are verifying information that Meyer was seen with a woman and a Filipino man the night before he was found dead.

Investigators are eyeing closed-circuit television footage from the apartelle to get more leads on the case.  Joel Locsin/ELR/LBG, GMA News

I was wondering if they are related. Perhaps dealings with the mines or a business venture. Hopefully they will get a lead from the emails. They could be connected or separate cases all together.

(Updated Oct. 9, 8:34 a.m.) A Swiss national was found dead Tuesday in Surigao City, the third since two Swiss were gunned down at a beach resort in Misamis Oriental last weekend.

Police identified the victim as Florian Mayer, 23, of Geneva, GMA News stringer Natz Corbeta reported.

Mayer's body was found dumped in a rice field at Barangay Togbongon in Surigao City. A witness saw the body at about 8 a.m.

An autopsy showed the victim had a stab wound in the chest as well as laceration wounds in the neck. There were also signs of strangulation.

The victim likewise bore head injuries that suggested he may have been hit with a blunt object.

A separate report on MindaNews said police also found Mayer’s wallet with the driver’s license, credit cards, a condom, an iPhone, a cigarette lighter, a SIM card, and a pack of cigarettes.

Found on the victim's body were a gold necklace and white gold bracelet.

An investigation showed Mayer checked in at an inn Monday, with a male companion who checked in as “John Lennon” but is nowhere to be found.

Police are verifying information that Meyer was seen with a woman and a Filipino man the night before he was found dead.

 Don't know , the first report said "A Swiss National named John Lennon (nickname "Nono") was found shot to death in his hotel room by the Surigao City PNP this morning" and the latest said he is nowhere to be found , PNP probably need a little more time to count to 4 ,

Still thats far from a coincidence.
Two separate incidents involving two men from the same country. One sounded like he had been tortured for information.
I do have to ask....now there are two younger tourists also killed, will the international press get a whiff?

No I think it was only three. The radio report was sketchy at best and I would trust the update provided by Danishman.

"Delos Santos said the victim’s body was found close to Jazz Apartelle, around 100 meters away. It was in a grassy area near a rice field about 10 meters from the road."

 
..so must be 4
