During the interview, the doctor stated that he simply picked up his cousin, who he later discovered had joined the fraternity. The doctor admitted to being a Tau Gamma Phi member. He claimed he was unaware of any initiation or welcoming rituals.

The doctor stated in his affidavit that his cousin contacted him, but it was another person who asked what should be done to a person who had lost consciousness. The doctor said that the patient needed to be transported to the hospital.

However, the phone was soon turned off, and the doctor stated that he had no idea with whom he spoke. Saliglig died as a result of the excessive paddles he received from fraternity members.

Salilig, a member of the fraternity chapter in Zamboanga, was initiated into the Adamson chapter on February 19 at Bian, Laguna. After that, he died, and fraternity members allegedly decided to bury his body rather than take him to the hospital.
