FIL-AMERICAN IRREGULAR TROOPS
UNDER COL. HUGH S. STRAUGHN
HISTORY OF THE MANILA GROUP OF THE UNIT
From that time on, Col. Rillo without his knowledge, was being shadowed and spied at by the Japanese operative which led to his arrest on June 6, 1942. He was released on December 25, 1942, after having been subjected to merciless tortures during his confinement in the Meisic detention station where he was lodged by the Airport Studio Military Police. Iñigo was arrested by the Japanese in November 1944, and brought to Fort Santiago where he was executed before the liberation forces arrived in Manila.
