Filipino death under investigation

Sadly, yet another hazing death and injury to a second individual has occurred in yet another Filipino fraternal organization called the Scout Royal Brotherhood, according to investigating police. It has multiple chapters with a Greek-letter for each. Curiously, an LA street gang also goes by that name. The dead youth is Elvis Sinalia and he died in Poblacion 2, Alfonso town.
