The 27-year-old trooper was the last man standing in the bloody Mamasapano firefight, GMA News reported.

He was still clutching two hand grenades when his body was found by the river, the same report said.

Tria, who hailed from Barangay Cabihan, Virac, was the son of PSI Guillermo Tria Jr.,the head of the Internal Affairs Service unit of the PNP in Catanduanes.

Born in 1987, "Mac Mac," as he was known to his friends, graduated from the Philippine National Police Academy in 2009, obtaining excellent marks in sniper, commando, scout ranger training, and in the handling of explosives.

 Tria is said to be the lone casualty from Bicol in the gruesome killing which took place Sunday, January 25.

Many Bicolanos, who consider him a hero, have expressed their outrage at President Benigno Aquino's apparent indifference at the sorrow and grief of the bereaved, and more importantly, his lack of condemnation over the atrocious massacre.

Tria, his friends lament, is now home, his remains not even dignified with a glimpse from his Commander-in-Chief.

PNoy, they said, chose to attend the inauguration of a car plant some 30 minutes away from Villamor Airbase, where the bodies of the 44 were brought.

 "[Mac Mac] deserves honor for his selfless bravery, but even that was denied of him by his very Commander-in-Chief," a netizen posted.

"PNoy should be made accountable for the blood on his hands," another netizen added.BICOLSTANDARD.COM
