Meanwhile, two classmates of Dormitorio were hospitalized after complaining of stomach ache after they were reportedly “maltreated,” the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) confirmed on Monday.

Brigadier General Edgard Arevalo, AFP spokesperson, said one of the cadets was hospitalized on September 17 while another on September 21.

Dormitorio likewise complained of stomach ache and vomited on September 17. He died a day after.

Arevalo said the military has yet to establish if there is a link in all three cases.

“Let me establish that one, hindi ko pa kasi naitanong ang particular link na ‘yan but so far, these all are fourth class cadets so they are all classmates in the PMA,” he said.

“Ang initial na diagnosis, dinadaing nila yung kanilang pain in their abdomen,” he noted.

The alleged perpetrators in the case of the two cadets had been identified and are being held at the PMA Holding Center “under tight guard” as the investigation proceeds.

“The AFP, the PMA, in particular are both enraged by these incidents and thus reiterate their strong and unequivocal positions condemning maltreatment,” Arevalo noted.
