The Philippine National Police has formed a task force to look into the killing of publisher Dennis Denora in Panabo City, Davao del Norte last June 7.

Denora was gunned down at about 1 p.m. last June 7 while he was in his car with his driver along the national highway.

A reward of P300,000 has also been offered to anyone who could give information that would solve the killing of Denora.

Provincial police chief Senior Superintendent Allan Manibog said the task force will have representatives from (http://davaotoday.com/main/human-rights/pnp-launches-task-force-to-investigate-murder-of-dennis-denora/):

– Philippine National Police
– National Bureau of Investigation
– Department of Justice
– Armed Forces of the Philippines
– other government agencies

The Davao del Norte police earlier said it has gathered pieces of evidence from the scene that “can help with the development of the investigation.”

For his part, Task Force Denora spokesman Superintendent Allan Padilla said they are now looking into at least five persons of interest.

“We are doing a background check on the five persons of interests and we are working on all angles,” he said.

Also, the PNP has interviewed Denora’s driver and obtained copies of the CCTV footage from where Denora was killed.

Manibog said they are also looking into an unusual person who was seen in the CCTV watching an NBA game during the shooting incident.

He added an initial ballistic report showed the same gun was used in a series of shooting incidents that happened in the province.

Meanwhile, Denora’s phone was submitted to the authorities for forensic investigation.
