Canadian Murdered in Surigao City (continued news updates relating to Harry Doyle murder case)

577 posts in this topic


I know nothing about this man. However I do notice that in the comment attributed to him he says : the government butchered ,raped, and used a backhoe to bury the bodies on nov 23,2009 57 humans;

 

 

This is the first time that I have ever seen anyone, foreigner or filipino, claim that it was the government that committed the killings. Everyone else has claimed that it was the Ampatuan clan. If this was his attitude I am surprised that something bad didnt happen to him before this.

 

 

I notice that he also said : this country is a killing field - something which I consider to be a huge misrepresentation of the facts- in fact an outright lie. I live in Davao City, and I certainly do not consider it to be a killing field. Nor did I consider Cebu-where I was last month- to be a killing field.

 

He very well might have been a good person, with the best of intentions, but it appears that he let his emotions get out of hand and lead him to saying things that were in my opinion counter-productive to affecting change in this country.

RIP

A Canadian citizen was killed in Surigao City this evening. The victim named Harry Doyle, age 62 who resided at km.6, Barangay Bonifacio was shot around 4pm this evening at the Palma Resort in Punta Bilar, Surigao City. The perpetrators were two unidentified male persons. Harry Doyle was a regular visitor to Cebu and even held a residence there, so I am sure there are members of the forum who knew the man. Harry was also a former member of the forum in the past. He is survived by his wife Jane Doyle and their son..

 

 

I will add more information once I can collect all the fact tomorrow

 

RIP, and heartfelt prayers to his grieving family.

 

Nobody deserves to be murdered like that

Update:

 

While they were having the family picnic two men approached Harry asking for either food or money. Harry got into a scuffle pushing one of the men, when the other man pulled a weapon and open fire shooting Harry 5 times.

So sorry you lost your friend. Something like this just goes to show you how truly cheap life is in the RP. Standing up to a couple of beggars gets you shot 5 times, hard to believe.

I had the chance to know Harry for over a year now. Harry was a very smart guy with a strong personality and was one of those guys that when you met him you either really liked or couldn't stand him. Harry and I had a lot of contact the last several weeks and I feel better that are last word to each other were good ones.

 

Deepest wishes for Jane and the kids in what they must of scene and are going through.

      Very strangely this is not being reported anywhere in the mainstream news. Last nights (Sat) 7.50 from Ormoc to Cebu collided with another vessel not too far from the port of Cebu. Wife's parents were passengers. MIL texted us at home around 9.30pm that they had just hit another vessel while still out at sea. Sadly the collision was at full cruising speed and apparently "rear ended" another vessel, a barge or similiar sized vessel. Almost all of the passengers which appeared to be not numerous, sustained some injuries, but no deaths. The response of 2Go is being slammed by all aboard, with not telling the passengers any updates, to not giving out where berthed info to making the walking injured walk to waiting relatives outside the port. A large proportion of the passengers were asleep at the time of the collision and have sustained injuries consistent from being thrown from a seat, cuts, abrasions, missing teeth, severe bruising etc. It has been said that the 2Go vessel rode up and onto the other vessel. Quick thinking crew on the other vessel tied the two together to prevent the 2Go cat from becoming adrift or possible sinking.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace

      Is this normal in the Philippines ? Is this wacko or am I living in an altered state ? My long term girlfriend is getting ready to sign a contract for an unbuilt half of duplex of 26 sq. meters for half a million p. in a small city in Mindanao. Nice fight ensued on Valentines Day. I have visited but will not be moving there for a year and have no idea about buiding costs in the area. This seems way off the chain to me, but what do I know? Any knowlegeable input would be appreciated.

      A friend has an Iphone 5 and it needs a screen, can anyone recommend a reasonable and reliable place to have it done? I may bring it with me to get it fixed for him if it can be done for a reasonable amount
