Too bad. May his soul rest in peace.

Hopefully, the killer will be caught and justice will prevail. I'm sure Duterte will personally pursue this case.

When are you going to realize they never give justice to murdered foreigners. It's people like you that deny this place is dangerous that makes people feel safe coming here.

To any and all THE PHILIPPINES IS NOT A SAFE PLACE!!!!!!

Ummm, we are talking about the Philippines in here. If you knew anything at all you would know that foreigners are murdered here with total impunity. The racism is so great they would never consider prosecuting a Filipino for it unless they are paid big money.

Last Monday morning while on my way to Davao International the local radio said a American committed suicide at the . Sampaguita Inn in Davao City. I see now his son says it was murder. Is there any proof of that? Not a thing in the news.

The going back and forth of safety in each country is ridiculous. Fact is, there are lots of murders in both countries and in all countries around the world because there are nut cases everywhere.

Of course there are many unsafe places in US. Of course there are many unsafe places in Phils. Just have to be smart about where you are placing yourself and the people you get involved with.

Cant help if there was someone wanting to hunt you down and kill you. Also cant help it when a nut goes on a rampage...and that happens in Phils too, not just the US.

Be realistic.

You always talk about a subject you do not know. Racism? Really? Stupid person like you doesn't care what you look like or what the color of your skin is...as long as you have what they want. Fact!

Check this out and educate yourself, for fucksakes! The thing you called "RACISM" is not only in the Philippines, fuckface! Even caring for newborn babies are subjected to Racism by YOU American gook!

Your stupidy never cease to amaze me...
