LORETO, AGUSAN DEL SUR – Police found 3 dead bodies trapped in a 70-foot tunnel they dug in Purok 5, Barangay Santa Teresa, Loreto, Agusan del Sur on March 6, Friday.


The victims identified as Dennis Distor Pegaredo (26 yrs. old), and 2 other minors who were Pegaredo’s relatives were all residents of the said barangay.


Based on the investigation, Pegaredo shouted for help after he smelled a strange odor when his 18-year-old nephew, Kenneth Kier Daquis Mayuga, went down to aide him, but both were not able to come out.

After knowing this, Kenneth’s 15-year-old brother, Jasper Daquis Mayuga, went down to rescue them but was also trapped inside.

According to PMAJ. Rennel Serrano, a spokesperson in Police Regional Office (PRO) 13, the 3 men conducted an illegal treasure hunting activity not wearing any safety gear.
