The Philippine’s bet for Miss Universe, Catriona Gray made her mother’s dream a reality. She was crowned in red recently. Just prior to her victory, another Red or Richard Santillan, Atty. Glenn Chong’s aide for 11 years was killed by police scalawags. PAO’s forensic finding on the last day of his wake shows that he was tortured. This is after the murder and set up scenarios floated by the police. The clean election lawyer/whistleblower swears to avenge his death amidst the hysterical cries of Santillan’s wife and mother.

[VIDEO]: Atty. Glenn Chong calls on the PNP Chief after learning PAO’s forensic finding that Santillan was tortured prior to the alleged ambush/shootout situation.
PNP Chief On Fire
Chong calls on PNP Chief Oscar Albayalde to give justice at once to his trusted aide’s death. He can be made accountable for being quiet. Chong said that it may be acceptable for the police to kill criminals. But not torture any citizen, kill, and drag to the road to fake a shoot out scene. He said that the police chief’s silence can only implicate him to the crime.
Fake Police Report
According to the police investigation, Santillan died during a legitimate police operation against “Highway Boys.” It is a criminal group involved in the robbery, illegal drug trade, and murder in Rizal and eastern parts of Metro Manila. However, Chong’s belief that his bodyguard/friend did not die that way proves to be right as per forensic evidence from the PAO.
Initial Suspicion was Right
The suspicion of Chong that Santillan was tortured stems after he saw that one of his toenails was removed by his killers. This triggers him to think that the perpetrators tried to get him through the slain aide. Santillan did not show up at the airport on that unfortunate day. Therefore, Chong can be the real target who managed to take a taxi home.
It is very obvious that Santillan’s circumstances follow the same pattern as that of the late teenager, Kian de Los Santos’ death. That was also from the hands of the corrupt authorities. It certainly made the President looks bad for giving considerations to the men in uniform during legitimate police operations for the drug war. The only difference is that the former was popularized by the media while the latter was under strict control. The world’s mafia is known to have power over the mainstream news channels.
Miss Universe in Red Triumphs Despite Many Filipinos’ Grief
The new Miss Universe certainly brings honor to the country with her wit, beauty, and charm. She looked stunning in her red Mayon volcano-inspired gown. Her winning slow motion signature turn is like no other. Despite the nation’s glee over her success, around half of the Filipinos are grieving and seeking justice for fallen Red.
