RIP RODRIGO DE LEON (May 2, 1970 – January 27, 2024)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Saturday at 7:26 p.m.

The decedent appears to have been of Filipino descent. He was one of four people killed by the 79-year-old family patriarch, also named Rodrigo De Leon, who after the murders, took his own life.

One can guess that Rodrigo De Leon (53) was the son of Rodrigo De Leon (79), and that Arabella De Leon (80) was the wife of the killer and the mother of the 53-year-old Rodrigo.
