Murder In The Family - Philippines


Recommended Posts

Paul

This is a documentary, which new members may be interested in viewing. Some of us who have been around the Philippines for a number of years, may have seen this video pop up a number of times

 

http://vimeo.com/9536341

 

The documentary, 'Murder In The Family', is about a woman's (Margaret Davis) fight to prove that her son (Stephen) was killed by his Filipina (Evelyn), who he married after moving to the Philippines to work in the IT industry, in 2002.

-----------------

 

If you would like to learn more about this story, you may buy the book that Margaret Davis (Steven's mother) wrote, titled For the Love of My Son, through Amazon.

you were on a good roll until this.   one thing i suggest to any readers is that "rules of thumb" or to be more precise "axiomatic feel good utterances" such as that above are not only useless, but

Wow, i had forgotten all about that, it was nearly 3yrs ago, lol. You are correct, this saying has been banded about for very many years, maybe i was being a little flippant at the time, i apologise,

I viewed all four videos. I can see how jumping at the first pretty face that cozies up to you would be as bad a mistake in the RP as anywhere else.   Despite the number of guys who've leaped before

The bitch evelyns appeal was recently turned down. She will probably spend the rest of her life rotting in jail. The kids are doing well living with Stehens parents(NOT IN the P.I.)

Forgive me if I am mistaken, but it seems to me that it was Evelyn's own family that provided the needed imformation on where the brother in law was. This put there daughter in jail. This says alot about the quaility of her family.

This is a documentary that was split into four individual videos, which new members, especially, may be interested in viewing. Some of us who have been around the Philippines for a number of years, may have seen this video pop up a number of times.

 

 

Thank you, it's a documentary that is a must to see for those who are contemplating a move to PI.

"Wholly predictable" is a apt description of your posts. (smile)

The 'value' of life here in the Philippines seems to be proportional to its financial global rating. How often do we hear about fights, shootings, knifeings and muders that are related to even the most minor of disagreements. Only recently I read a report about a knife attack that happened because of how the other guy 'stared'.

 

I think it's impractical to go through life worried about certain consequences to your actions but I do think its valuable to be aware of mentalities and behaviours that you might experience here and the depth of the retribution that might be easily offered out.

 

Its good to see the law working here in this particular case and it would be nice to think the same outcome would have happened if the deceased mum did not 'fight the corner'.

 

Do not let this story put you off coming to the Philippines; it's a great country with some great people just be informed by articles like this, use your common sense and better judgement.

And may I add, it is always a good idea to make sure you are worth more alive than dead. In other words, make sure your income stops once you die, at least until you know your wife and her family very well. Not only could your wife be a threat to your life if you pick the wrong one, but her family might be even more of a threat if they are not getting what they feel is their fair share, and think they will get it once you are dead.

 

This story should definitely not be a deterrent to anyone thinking about moving to the Philippines or marrying a Filipina, but just a warning of what can happen if you marry the wrong one.

 

Thank you Paul for posting that for others to see. I saw it on TV back in the states on one of those crime programs, but this copy was more to the point and not drawn out for an hour with commercials.

We (my Philippine wife) and I saw the original of this on TV. I have noticed over the years a continual fuelling of the "evidence" against the wife on the Internet and can only imagine it serves the interests of those providing it. An area that has not been explained is what Computer business was the husband working in Angeles City and why was he being paid 60,000 pounds sterling salary ? who, I wonder, benefited from the continuity of his original work and the cessation of his salary ? I believe the mother got what she paid for. I do not see justice being served.

Despite the number of guys who've leaped before they looked and didn't get in trouble hooking up with a girl who was too poor, too uneducated and too young to be a good match, that isn't the way you want to bet, fellas!

From memory, and it is some time since I watched it, it was her family that gave the evidence against her.

 

What was shocking was the lack of police action unless someone paid them.

It cost Steves mother a great deal of
