‘Fat & Thin’ tagged in killing


A person of interest in the killing of a barangay chairman in Tondo, Manila last August was shot dead by two gunmen in Barangay 100, Zone 8 in Tondo Tuesday afternoon.

Police identified the victim as Emmanuel Carpio alias “Toway,” a resident of 103 Del Pilar Tondo Manila. Based on the report of SPO2 Joseph Kabigting of the Manila Police District Homicide Section, the shooting happened in an alley of Del Pilar Street.

One of suspects was described as having a reed-thin body standing 5’5” to 5’7” while his cohort was described as chubby and short at about 5’2” in height.

Some locals dubbed the killers as “Fat & Thin” from the popular comedic character that later on served as a brand of delicacies.

The suspects wore bull caps to hide their faces, according to witnesses. They casually walked away from the alley where they ambushed Carpio, said to be the brother of Barangay Chairman Abigail Carpio.
