MANILA, Philippines — The Manila Police District (MPD) has filed multiple complaints against several members of the Aegis Juris Fraternity over the apparent fatal hazing Horacio "Atio" Castillo III.
In a two-page letter complaint, the MPD recommended filing of murder, anti-hazing, and robbery complaints against the following:
John Paul Solano
Antonio Trangia (Ralph's father)
Arvin R. Balag
Mhin Wei R. Chan
Ranie Rafael Santiago
Oliver John Audrey B. Onofre
Jason Adolfo Robiños
Danielle Hans Matthew Rodrigo
Karl Mathew Villanueva
Joshua Joriel Macabali
Axel Munro Hipe

A separate obstruction of justice was filed against Rosemarie Trangia, Ralph's mother.
Ralph and his father are being eyed two of the primary suspects in the case. Antonio owns the vehicle reportedly used by Ralph to transport Atio's body from the hazing venue to Tondo, Manila.
Ralph fled the country on September 19 with his mother. He first boarded a flight to Taiwan via NAIA Terminal 1 before flying out to Chicago.
Solano, among the primary suspects in the case, is also facing additional perjury and obstruction of justice charges.

Several unidentified members of Aegis Juris Fraternity and Regina Legis et Juris Sorority are also facing murder, anti-hazing and robbery complaints.
