Siquijor amok case
Location(s) Siquijor, Philippines
Killed 32
Weapon(s) Bolo

In 1905 Commissioner Dean Conant Worcester related to the Manila Times that many years prior a man had killed about 32 people on the island Siquijor, Philippines. According to the report the man one Sunday waylaid the people who were returning from church to their rural homes. After dispatching one group with his bolo he would move closer towards town until he chanced upon the next party, thus preventing for some time that information about the murders could spread. He continued in this manner until the slaughter was finally discovered, whereupon the people stoned him to death.[1]
