Investigators are now looking for four motives in the killing of Misamis Occidental radio broadcaster Juan Jumalon, also known as DJ Johnny Walker inside his home on early Sunday, November 5, according to the Presidential Task Force on Media Security (PTFoMS).

PTFoMS Executive Director Undersecretary Paul Gutierrez said the motive may possibly involve personal grudges, work-related, or politics-related, based on the police investigation. However, he did further disclose them.

Gutierrez said that Jumalon's identity as a broadcaster may be the reason that the incident is work-related, while another angle of the killing could be of a land dispute or the recently concluded barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections.

In a police report, the 57-year-old radio broadcaster was shot dead inside his residence by an unknown suspect while greeting the radio listeners on-air.

With such a fatal incident, Police Regional Office 10 spokesperson Maj. Joan Navarro mentioned that they are now coordinating with the Anti-Cybercrime Group for the enhancement of the image of the suspect through the recovered CCTV footage.
