Horacio Castillo III died after undergoing hazing at Aegis Juris fraternity last week. He was a freshman taking up law at the University of Santo Tomas. Classmates are expected to join family and friends for the funeral.

Castillo’s family is confident that justice will be served. Police have already filed murder, kidnapping, and other criminal charges on several members of Aegis Juris fraternity, including John Paul Solano, the only suspect in custody. A lookout bulletin has already been issued against the suspects.

One primary suspect, Ralph Trangia, has already escaped to the US before the lookout bulletin was issued but authorities are confident he will be brought to justice still. Charges of obstruction of justice has also been filed against Trangia’s mother who accompanied him to the US.

“It’s obvious what they have done. And it speaks for itself. I think justice will be given to Atio because God is good, glory to God. I’m sure he will be given justice. I have nothing to worry about that,” said Atio’s uncle, Dr. Gerry Castillo.
