ABS-CBNNews.com reports that "an unidentified witness to the San Beda hazing case has provided information to the lawyer of slain student Marc Andre Marcos linking 30 Lex Leonum Fraternitas members and officers to the deadly initiation rites." The report cited Atty. Jose Vener Ibarra, the legal counsel of the Marcos family, who said he "received a message from an anonymous sender on social networking site Facebook detailing events of the initiation rites in Imus, Cavite last July 28 that led to the death of Marcos."
The report revealed that the message sent to Ibarra "detailed the alleged events from the time the victim was with the fraternity officers at the parking lot of San Beda Alabang, until the group moved to the frat house in DBP Village, Las Piñas City and eventually to the farm in Imus where the reported hazing took place." Ibarra explained, however, that the Facebook and text messages still have to be verified.
The report also added that police have already conducted follow up operations on the alleged safehouse of the fraternity at 20B Zalamea St., DBP village in Las Piñas.
Meanwhile, Perseus Echiminada of The Philippine Star reports that a female witness, identified only as Shy, said that "members of the Lex Leonum fraternity were reportedly ’noisy and making growling sounds’ when they held a meeting inside the Salt and Spirit Bar and Grill in Las Piñas City hours before the hazing incident in Cavite." The group was spotted at the bar at 10 p.m. on July 28. They reportedly "held a closed door meeting until past midnight." The witness said she saw around 40 people in the group of Marcos and fratman Gian Angelo Veluz. Veluz’s family owns the farm in Cavite.
