The Reymarc Rabutazo Hazing Case

Reymarc Rabutazo was an 18-year-old boy who allegedly died in a hazing incident which happened in the town of Kalayaan in the province of Laguna. Rabutazo was from barangay Longos in said town. Rabutazo went through initiation rites by the Tau Gamma Phi fraternity.

According to local authorities, they were provided information that a person drowned and died at a river. However, it was later known that he didn't die from drowning. That in fact, he was a victim of hazing. According to those who saw the body, his legs and thighs were filled with bruises. Bruises are among the most common signs of hazing.

The young man was brought to the General Cailles Hospital in Pakil, Laguna but he has already expired upon arrival at the medical facility.
