Detective Work NCIS-style.


Sometimes the basis for an acquittal is the existence of several probable versions of the crime that makes up reasonable doubt.

In the case of alleged murder victim Jennifer Laude a.k.a. Jeffrey Laude,  the defense team of Pvt. First Class Joseph Scott Pemberton could have a field day given several probable versions of what happened that fateful night of October 11, 2014 inside Room No. 1 of Celzone Lodge in Olongapo City.  The facts that have surfaced so far offer several possibilities.  Take a look:


First Version:  Barbie and Gallamos Affidavits

At around 10:45 pm on October 11, 2014, Laude was drinking ice tea with his friend and fellow transgender “Barbie” a.k.a. Mark Clarence Gelviro  at Ambyanz Bar in Olongapo City when four members of the visiting US Marines approached them. Laude agreed to go to a motel with one of the US Marines, Pemberton  after they talked for merely 5 minutes.   “Barbie” described Pemberton to be friendly but already drunk.  She also claimed to have accompanied Laude and Pemberton when they checked in at Celzone Lodge at around 10:55.   “Barbie” even stayed with the couple inside Room 1 for ten minutes.  Before leaving, “Barbie” told Pemberton to ” make sure her friend is safe.’”  On her way down the motel, he met another  Filipino and joined him in Room 5 of same  motel.  She stayed there for thirty minutes or so.

A motel front desk clerk Elias Gallamos noticed that around 11:30 Pemberton came out of Room 1 but left the door open. Seeing this and thinking that the couple had left the room, he took a peek inside but hesitated to enter when he saw the feet of Laude inside the toilet.  After fifteen minutes, Gallamos became concerned that Laude took a long time to leave.  This led him to enter the room and discover the lifeless body of Laude.  He immediately called the police to report the incident.

At around 11:45, “Barbie” claimed that the front desk clerk of the motel informed him that his friend “Jeffrey” has passed out inside the toilet of his rented room.  Barbie proceeded back to Room 1 where he found the police already conducting an investigation and found the lifeless body of his friend Laude.

The sworn affidavits of “Barbie” and Gallamos were secured by the local media.


Second Version: Initial Police Report Sex Service Gone Wrong.

Philippines US Killing

According to the report prepared by investigator-on-case SPO3 Tyrone DP Tecson, the suspect Pemberton engaged Laude for “sex service.” His discovery that Laude was “gay,” the report said, “prompted him to kill the victim.”  This a verbatim reportage by the news website Rappler (

This  “sex worker angle” could be precipitated from the following:

1.)  It is not uncommon that prostitutes frequent Olongapo bars whenever US warships anchors at Subic Bay.

2.) In a report by ABC 5 website (—witnesses), “Barbie” claimed that it was he and Laude who first saw the US Marines entering the bar.  Laude avoided socialization until she went to Ambyanz on the night of October 11.  Coincidentally, the “resumption” of Laude’s socialization coincided with the anchorage of two US Navy warships at Subic Bay.

3.)  The quick 5-minute conversation between Laude and Pemberton that made the latter agree to check-in in a motel.  How come Laude will agree to go with a total stranger to a motel room when they barely knew each other.  Their acquaintance which lead to motel rendezvous even beat the fastest speed dating!

4.) Pembelton was kept in the dark that he is dealing with a transvestite.  He believe all the time that Laude and “Barbie” are women.

5.)  Laude voluntarily went with Pemberton to the Celzone Lodge.

6.)  “Barbie” casually hooked up another Filipino male who was a guest at motel and joined him at his room (Just like that!).

8.) Two condoms were reportedly found in the room’s waste basket.  One was filled with semen and fecal residues.  Even Senator Miriam Santiago concluded that consensual anal sex transpired.

Yet, the family of Laude vehemently denied that Laude is not a commercial sex worker. They claim that Laude is supported by his German boyfriend, Marc Sueselbeck who was at the time of the incident was out of the country.


Questions, questions. questions!

Actually, the affidavits of “Barbie” and “Gallamos” and the police report opened a pandora box of intriguing questions that only a skilled Naval Criminal Investigative Service(NCIS) detective can untangle.

1.)  Why did Laude “socialized” with a total stranger when he has a German boyfriend who provides him monthly allowance?  Any transvestite who  has a foreigner boyfriend who openly accepts his sexual orientation is already considered lucky. What more if he is given monthly allowance? Surely there could be a lot of jealous persons would like to be in her place.

2.) In some reports, Room 1 where Laude and Pembelton checked in was near the front desk.  If it is true that Laude was severely beaten as shown in his autopsy report, how come this was not overheard by the observant motel clerk?  Even if Laure is transvestite he still has a male anatomy and strength to ward off his assailant.  That will surely create commotion that can awaken any soul in that motel.

3.) How convenient is it for Barbie to say that she stayed at Room No. 5 with another total stranger that he just met a few minutes after leaving Laude and Pembelton. Why did  this mystery guy not named?  Why did Barbie chose to stay at the motel?  Is he there to “secure” Laude’s safety? Or was it a convenient alibi?

4.) How convenient to say that Pemberton left the door of Room 1 open when he existed the motel at around 11:30?.   Why on earth will a murder left the room open for the public to see his brutal crime?  It could also given the an unknown assailant access to the room.

5.)  The 15 to 30 unaccounted minutes after Pemberton left room no. 1  is  a black hole.  A lot of things could have happened during that span of time like any other person than the US Marine entering the room and beating Laude to death.

6.)  The time line after Gallamos discovered the murder and the time the Olongapo police arrived at the motel should be carefully inspected.  Laude and Pemberton checked in at around 11:00 pm; Pemberton left Room 1 at around 11:30pm;  Barbie came out Room 5 and discovered the lifeless body of Laude at around 11:45pm  with the Olongapo police already at the scene!  With all the alleged anal sex, mauling and choking happening in between- could all these things happen so fast?? One would wonder why the police which usually takes forever to respond – was so fast to arrive at the scene of the crime! They could have been contacted so much earlier for them to arrive at 11:45pm.


A lot of observers say that there is something about “Barbie” and Gallamos’ testimonies that smells fishy.  But no thanks to the emotional and “nationalist” people like Harry Roque, “Barbie ” is now accepted under the witness protection program and far from the prying eyes of police investigators.

With all this curious twists and turns in the facts presented, one cannot escape but reminded of the Julie Ann Rodelas Murder case.

Who can imagine that Rodelas, an FHM model was murdered by her best friend and fellow sexy model Althea Altamirano after the latter suspected her to be spreading rumors that she already has a child and is already spent or laos. Althea confided this to her boyfriend JR who then plotted to kill Rodelas. If not for JR’s sheer stupidity of leaving the Mcdonald’s takeout receipt with Rodelas’ lifeless body, the crime could not have been solved.

With sinister plots aplenty in this country, other possibilities in the Laude murder case should not to be readily dismissed,  If only to avoid another innocent man fall victim to injustice, the Philippine National Police and the National Bureau of Investigation should revisit the details of this heinous crime.

The Disrespectful German.

A lot of television viewers were shock to see the ABS-CBN news footage showing Marc Suselbeck,  the German boyfriend of slain transgender, Jennifer Laude shoving a Filipino soldier inside Camp Aguinaldo (1:53 in the Youtube video above).

Suselbeck and the sister of Laude scaled the perimeter fence of the military camp in a bid to confront US Marine Joseph Scott Pemberton who is suspected to murder Laude inside a Olangapo City motel.

Now, even if the act of illegally trespassing a military camp is excusable, Suselbeck’s shoving of a Filipino soldier is clear evidence of his disrespect for Filipino authorities.  For this, Suselbeck should be deported for being an “undesirable alien.”

Atty. Harry Roque, who is private lawyer for the Laude family should have controlled his clients and advised them that Camp Aguinaldo like any other military camps in the world is a highly -secured facility (In other countries, illegal trespassers could be arrested or worse shot on sight – my brother is not a pig, remember?).   He should have respected  Lt. Col. Harold Cabunoc’s plea for the trespassers to peacefully leave the “home of the AFP.”   Ironically, Roque is leading human rights lawyer and should have admonished his clients to respect Pemberton’s right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty by a court of law.  Regardless of the controversy surrounding the case, the basic human and constitutional  right to be presumed innocent should be respected.

What? Me Worry?



A lot of observers say that Donaire is a victim of his own blind ambition: moving up to the feather weight division wherein he does not belong.  In that jungle lurks a bone crusher they call the “Axeman” – Nicolas Walters.  True to what the pundits predicted, Jamaican-born Walters lost no time in squeezing  the haughty air out of the cocky Filipino Flash head.  Curiously, fans who are fed up of Donaire’s English twang and fly-guy swagger pray that he will learn from this bitter lesson and spend more time sweating in the gym rather than becoming another media personality like Manny Pacquiao.

Talking about Manny Pacquiao, many wonder what the jaw-dropping loss of Donaire mean to him?  Most especially that he will be fighting a taller, fast and younger Chris Algeiri nearly a month from now or on November 22 in Macau.  Some boxing experts say Pacquiao is yet to  seriously train for this fight.

But is Manny Pacquiao worried about Algeiri or his sloppy fight preparation?  Will he take a cue from Donaire’s downfall or continue with his careless ways?

Some say that Pacquiao should concentrate on his training to beat Algeiri and forget what he did in the past that will mess up his focus:


No. 1:  Shoot movies with starlets


No.2:  Dabble in Politics ( For crissakes, he does not need PDAF!!).


No.3 Socializing with Hollywood celebrities.


No. 4:  Involve himself in too much born-again activities.


No. 5.  Sing in concerts.


No. 6.  Joyriding in expensive cars.


No.7 Cockfighting.


and No. 8: Play professional basketball.

My goodness even enumerating all these extra-curricular activities can give anybody a headache!!


Sumasakit din kaya ang ulo ni Manny sakaka-joggle ng mga ginagawa nya? Parang ang hirap!


Anyway, Manny has a good idea what will happen if he gets so many things in his mind.

He may just doze off in exhaustion. Hala!

Pacquiao will Lose to Algieri.


If we are to rely on history, the odds could be against Boxer/actor/singer/politician/now professional basketball player Manny Pacquiao when he steps on the the right against taller, younger and undefeated Chris Algieri.



Manny who seems to very busy with his non-boxing careers: politics and professional basketball could be unprepared and non-focused. These aberrations from boxing worked to his disadvantage in the past when he lost to Bradley and Marquez.

Manny has to remember that without his winning streak, the special treatment he is enjoying from his basketball fans will vanish into thin air.  C’mon if you love they guy, you would be against his crazy foray into professional basketball.  Just look at how badly he plays the game.

Oh well..Manny got billions of pesos!  He can buy a basketball team and do anything with it right?

Cops vs. Robbers.

In a parallel universe where greatness is measured by a person’s with pretty and sexy women, we pit the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the lawless elements in a popularity contest.

Which side is associated with the prettiest and sexiest ladies?





Krista Miller being associated with a well-known convicted drug lord Ricardo Camata when the starlet went inside the latter’s hospital room at the Metropolitan Hospital in Manila last May 31,2014.





Sexy model (FHM Sexiest No. 100) Alyzza Agustin boasted on social media about her supposed links with General Alexander Ignacio that made her evade traffic rules.

Now, who do you think has the best “connect” with prettiest ladies? The good guys (PNP) or the naughty ones (Criminals)?

Why not have an “Unsullied” Police Force.

Given the seemingly non-ending black-eyes that the Philippine National Police (PNP) is reeling from, one cannot help but wonder how it is to have a well-disciplined police force that the public can rely on.





The  root of corruption in the police force is the mistaken belief that a  police badge  is a surefire ticket to achieve two of every macho man’s dreams:  money and women.

Look at the stupid cops who pulled off a brazen day time robbery along Metro Manila’s busiest highway, EDSA.  Thinking that their status as policeman can turn away CCTVs, they “intercepted” the helpless victims IN BROAD DAYLIGHT using vehicles registered in their names.  This just show how much police officers are be so stupid  just to earn a quick buck through criminality.

Look at the troubles that hound the Chief PNP himself, Gen. Allan Purisima whose critics say cannot pass his self-imposed lifestyle check.   This is because of the alleged properties he has that could not have been bought by his salary as a policeman.    Isn’t these accusations of graft and corruption charges (if true) are tell-tale signs of his love of material things.

And look at the latest PNP scandal, a virtually unknown sexy magazine model named Alyzza Agustin proudly name-dropped  PNP General Alex Ignacio in order to avoid a traffic violation. If this is true, this idiotic incident did not only exposed influence peddling, it showed how easy it is for the strong and powerful police general to lure young, sexy and pretty (not necessary) women under his claws.  Again if this is true,  lowly police officers who have a penchant for women can always follow suit in  using  their influence, strength and stature to get women for free.

With this successive disgusting images of policemen there is a need to overhaul the national police force.  This can be done by professionalising the police force by getting people who are dedicated to put public defense and service above everything else – even over their personal considerations (and weaknesses).  A lot seriously doubt that this can be done.

But it can actually be done  History will tell us that there was once a discipline group of people who prioritised the need of protecting their countrymen over anything else.  These are the Spartan warriors who lived in boot camps and away from their wives until they are 60 years of age.  They were near perfection when it comes to shaun the temptation of flesh and riches.  For these warriors, it was the defence of their city state that is the highest priority.

Pop culture has also a suggestion on how our country to come up with a disciplined police force.  In the popular TV sitcom, Games of Thrones, there  are the Unsullied  who were supposedly inspired by the Spartan warriors of the real world.  They are brave warriors who are dedicated to their queen just like the Spartans who are loyal to their city state.  To ensure their fierce and unbending character, the Unsulied are castrated and stripped of all material desires.  They are contented to be name “Greyworm” etc. so they will not think much of themselves.

If the national police is required the same strict standards as the Spartans of old Greece or the Unsullied of the Games of Thrones, surely there will be no scalawags and womanisers.

Going Gaga over Ellen.


The  latest and hottest buzz on Philippine desktop…the alleged leaked photos of Cebuana sexy pocket dynamite Ellen Adarna. It can be recalled that Ellen appeared in a “near” nude cover for Esquire magazine a few months ago.  This time around, the magazine is claiming that some of the nude photos used for its layouts were surreptitiously uploaded to the world-wide web.  The initial nude photos that came out shows Ellen in various acrobatic poses with nothing covering her body.


Poor Ellen.  She could find consolation on the fact that the nude photos uploaded were not as clear as what was published by Esquire. Or that these could spur media hype for her upcoming show with a leading RTW brand with a very sexy theme. Either way, one thing is for sure, Ellen’s popularity will grow leaps and bounds.
