|Mountain Province amok case|
|Date|| Early 20th century|
|Location(s)||Mountain Province, Philippines|
The man had failed to pay some taxes and was ordered to sleep at a guardhouse until his obligations were fulfilled, but since he had to provide his own subsistence, he was given passes to replenish his food supply. During one of these absences he went to the home of a man, who belonged to a family with whom his own had a generations-long feud, and killed the entire household.
The Ifugao was eventually brought back to the guardhouse where he readily confessed to the murders. He was also taken to the office of the Lieutenant-Governor for questioning, and when he was led away afterwards he attacked a little boy and tried to hit him on the head with his manacles, but was stopped before doing any harm. The man was later convicted of the murders, sentenced to a long prison term, and imprisoned at the provincial jail, where he remained inconspicuous, until he ran amok.
