Alleged UP hazing leader found dead

The former vice chair of the University of the Philippines College of Mass Communication (CMC) Student Council, earlier implicated in a hazing incident, was found dead on Saturday afternoon.

Ignacio Enrique “Nacho” Domingo’s body was found hanging from a cabinet inside his house in Loyola Grand Villa’s in Malanday, Marikina, a karate belt tied around his neck.

The 22-year-old Domingo was discovered by his mother, Dr. Giselle Gervacio at about 2 p.m. on 28 September.

Gervacio conducted cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) while Marikina Rescue 161 personnel summoned to the scene, Mavi Esguera and Edgar Abrogar, found no more signs of life, according to the police report.

The victim’s father is reportedly Department of Health Undersecretary Eric Domingo.

The parents executed a waiver foregoing a SOCO (scene of the crime) examination.

Two days before his death, Domingo was implicated by UP CMC in a hazing incident.

“Nacho Domingo, the incumbent CMCSC Vice-Chairperson, is allegedly involved in enabling and perpetrating a series of hazing acts under the UP Sigma Rho Fraternity as was shown in the screenshots of online conversations between their members that are currently circulating in social media. We are deeply disconcerted by his participation in such macho-feudal practices and are firm in our stand that we do not—and will never—welcome this kind of behavior in our organization,” the Facebook post read.

The screenshots allegedly showed photos of upper arms black and blue from apparent beatings and the paddle used in the supposed hazing rites.

The following day, 27 September, the Student Council posted that at “6:56 PM, Ignacio Enrique Domingo tendered his resignation as the College of Mass Communication Student Council Vice Chairperson following his involvement in the Sigma Rho fraternity issue. The College of Mass Communication Student Council (CMCSC) officially accepted his resignation during tonight’s emergency general assembly.”

In his resignation letter, Domingo wrote that he is quitting “as a matter of propriety” due to the hazing controversy.

A statement by UP Diliman Chancellor Michael Tan on Sunday confirmed that a “member of the UP Sigma Rho Fraternity” died but did not name the victim and cause of death.

“I appeal to all students, faculty and staff, as well as other concerned parties in and out of UP Diliman, to stop posting and forwarding social media messages related to the death of one of the Sigma Rho Fraternity members implicated in last week’s online exposé of the fraternity’s hazing,” said Tan.  “Let us do this out of sense of decency and respect for the privacy of the family.”
