Ralph Trangia was allegedly involved in the killing of Horacio ‘Atio’ Castillo III. According to the police, Trangia is a member of the Aegis Juris fraternity and the red Mitsubishi Strada (ZTV 539) pickup that brought the body of Castillo to the Chinese General Hospital is owned by his father, Antonio Trangia. Both father and son are now suspects in the crime, alongside John Paul Solano who was allegedly with the Trangias.

The Department of Justice issued a lookout bulletin for the suspects in the hazing crime but, according to the Bureau of Immigration, Ralph Trangia was able to leave the country a day before the immigration advisory was issued.

Flight is an indication of guilt, and, therefore, it is safe to assume that Ralph Trangia is guilty of the accusation against him.

Aside from the Trangias and Solano, the other suspects in the death of Castillo are:

Arvin Balag
Mhin Wei Chan
Marc Anthony Ventura
Axel Mundo Hipe
Oliver John Audrey Onofre
Joshua Joriel Macabali
Jason Adolfo Robiños
Ranie Rafael Santiago
Danielle Hans Mattew Rodrigo
Carl Mattew Villanueva
Aeron Salientes
Marcelino Bagtang
Zimon Padro
Jose Miguel Salamat

According to the autopsy, Horacio Castillo III died due to a heart attack caused by the extreme pain he suffered during the apparent hazing at the hands of Aegis Juris members.
