Recommended Posts

A Canadian citizen was killed in Surigao City this evening. The victim named Harry Doyle, age 62 who resided at km.6, Barangay Bonifacio; a resident of 849 Uninon St. Fredericton, NB, Canada was shot around 4pm this evening at the Palma Resort in Punta Bilar, Surigao City. He was at a beach resort attending a family picnic with his wife and son when he was shot with a yet undetermined short firearm. He received 5 shots to the body, While they were having the family picnic two men approached Harry one 5' 3'', medium build waring a black jacket and a black bonnet asking for either food or money. Harry pushed the man away and then got into a scuffle pushing him away; when he pulled out a weapon and open fire shooting Harry 5 times. the other man 5" 6"", medium build with his face covered by a black handkerchief and also waring a black jacket also fled the scene of the crime after the shooting. Harry received five wounds (1) shot to the right thigh, (1) on his upper right chest, (1) to the upper belly, and (2) on his left thigh. When the police arrived he was bathed in his on blood and had already expired. The shooting was witnessed by his wife, son and by over 30 witnesses who were at the beach. I do not believe his bodyguard was present during the time of the shooting The investigators found no slug or shell casings at the scene. Currently the police have no suspects. Harry Doyle was transferred to NILO Funeral Homes , Km. 3, Brgy. Luna, Surigao City awaiting a PNP Crime Laboratory autopsy. The PNP are presently conducting a continuous investigation for possible motive identification of the perpetrators.

I talked to investigators today myself, many who knew and liked Harry Doyle, and I trust that the local PNP will conduct a rigorous investigation and I have faith in their abilities to do so. The Canadian Embassy is also informed and has requested the current known information of this case, which was collected and forwarded to them by our President of the Surigao City Expat Association. If any members have any useful information pertaining to a possible motive or any other useful information than please PM or email me and I will turn this information over to the proper local PNP investigators.
Or please contact Investigator on Case SPO1 Rosemarie E. Almazan or PO2 Mark Anthony Miole - 09187261390 / 09999984933

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 update information as it becomes available after the autopsy and further investigation are completed.

I have never even visited but I recognize his name (and details from the write up).

 

Did he really adopt 11 RP kids?

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

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.

 

 

(Sorry for having to update information like this, but this forum does not allow me edit or update my original opening post. I will just have to add new posts as I get more additional information. Sorry if it causes any inconvenience or confusion in the information.)

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.
