Danilo "Danny" Guades was a Filipino spree killer who hacked to death 10 people with a bolo and injured 17 more on a drunk rampage through his neighbourhood in the barangay Gadgaran of Calbayog City on June 2, 2007.


Danny Guades was jailed for seven years at the Caloocan City Jail for stabbing to death his elder brother Toto some time in the 1980s.

He had been married, but his wife died in December 2006 and he used to sleep at his cousin's house since then. He had a child, who was in grade four at the time of the murders.

Throughout the village Guades was known as a mentally imbalanced trouble-maker who was often drunk, sometimes waking two days, before running to the mangroves to sleep there on the ground for the following two days.

Apparently Guades had also told others that somebody is always chasing him


39-year old Guades began his rampage at the home of his cousin Emily Guades Ponce. Entering her house at about 2 a.m. he attacked her husband Benjamin with a 22-inch long bolo knife, hitting him in the left shoulder, before turning against her sleeping children, killing her son Eric with a blow to his head and injuring her other son Benjie and her daughter Marylin with hits to their heads and arms. Emily Guades Ponce, though also injured at her head, managed to jump out of a window and escape.

Subsequently Danny Guades attacked the Jadulco family, living nearby, killing pregnant Gemma Jadulco and five of her children and leaving two others injured, before walking to the Conteras' home. There he killed Candido Conteras, injured his wife Maria and their daughter Jennelyn and mortally wounded their son Danilo. In the backyard of the house Guades attacked Carlito Layam, who was slightly injured at his right arm, but managed to fight off the attacker.

Afterwards Guades entered the house of Enis Lecis through the window and hit sleeping Eduardo and Enis Lecis in the head, killing Eduardo. At a wake for a member of the Ramada family, where Guades had spent some time drinking earlier, he cut Francisco Ramada's throat, hit Ernesto Ramada's neck and stabbed Armando Ramada into the left side of his body. Michael Caber and Myra Manlapid were also injured, before people attending the wake managed to fight Guades off. Guades fled to a road junction, where he attacked his final victims, Eddie and Jocelyn Gonzaga, who were on board of a motorcycle. Guades assaulted them with the bolo and a club, hitting Eddie Gonzaga at the arm, jaw and forehead and his wife at her left elbow, before the driver of the motorcycle was able to escape.

Guades finally surrendered himself to Fortunato Burbana, a villager, at about 3 a.m., according to himself out of fear police might chase and kill him. Burbana then turned him over to police, ending Guades' one hour long rampage. At the police station Guades denied killing anyone but his brother many years ago. He was charged with multiple murder.
