26 of 37 recovered bodies in Davao mall fire identified


DAVAO CITY – Twenty-six of the 37 charred bodies recovered inside the NCCC Mall in Davao City have already been identified, as of 11 p.m. Tuesday, by the authorities through their relatives and friends and from the possession recovered with the bodies.

In the City Government’s official list, 26 fatalities were positively-identified, as follows:

Sismar, Jeffrey;

Bongcayao, Mary Louielyn;

Bangoy, Kurtchin Angela;

Pabelonia, Joy;

Garzon, Christen;

Quimsing, Jim Benedict;

Basalan, Jonas;

Samontina, Jessica;

Quimpo, Venus Joy;

Limosnero, Jimboy;

Ferraren, Christine Joy;

Montanez, Rosyl;

Artiaga, Missy Rose;

Muyco, Rhenzi Nova;

Roble, Ivan Nebelle;

Yorsua, Elyn Joy;

Abad, Nancy Loyd;

Solis, Jessica;

Liwaya, Charlyn;

Ga-a, Melvin;

Generales, Regine;

Celestial, Gantioco;

Melvin Ga-a was not included in the initial official list of 37 missing persons but his body was positively identified by his family and friends. Ga-a was an employee of NCCC assigned to the mall’s Home Décor section, not a call center agent of SSI.

The foreign-sounding name in the initial list, Hongijangjian, was meanwhile removed from the official list as authorities suspect the earlier information was either an error or a prank. The person who listed the name cannot be contacted.

On Tuesday afternoon, Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio visited the wake of some of the victims who perished in Dec. 23 mall fire and condoled with the grieving families. She also assured them of support.

Still listed as missing persons as of Tuesday evening are:

Alviola, Christine;

Apalacio, Iana;

Balcao, Randy;

Constantinopla, Roderick;

Daloro, Mary Joy;

Demafeliz, Mikko;

Entera, Lister Jade;

Matundo, Johani;
