2 foreigners were found dead, another was killed in a road accident


Recommended Posts

At 2 p.m. last Sunday, a 70-year-old German, was found dead inside the Meili Beach Resort in barangay Poblacion, Alcoy town in southern Cebu.

Horst Michael Feyerabend was rushed to the hospital but didn’t make it alive.

Police are checking the area where the German’s body was found to determine whether there was foul play in his death.

Four hours later, at past 6 p.m., a Swedish national died after his motorcycle rammed a concrete fence along the national road in barangay Tuble, Moalboal town, southern Cebu.

Lars Starner, 53, who was only wearing a bicycle helmet, died after suffering severe head injuries from the crash.

Police said Starner, who is temporarily staying in Moalboal town, was heading home on his Honda CRM 250 motorcycle from a beach party in barangay Saavedra when the accident happened.

Fifteen hours later, in a house in Moalboal town, a 68-year-old Australian national was found dead with a gunshot wound in his head.

His Filipino wife, Vertrud, and her housemaid told police that Eduard Halbwachs apparently committed suicide and shot himself with a .45 pistol.

Vertrud said she and Halbwachs had just finished their breakfast at a little past 9 a.m. yesterday when he excused himself to go to the garage to check on their vehicle.

A few minutes later, Vertrud claimed that she heard a shot fired. She rushed to the garage and found the Australian slumped face down on the ground with a bullet wound on his head. A .45 pistol was found near his body.

Vertrud’s relatives told police that the Australian was suffering from an illness which caused him severe headaches.

This may have caused the Australian to take his life. Police were still investigating the incident to determine whether there was foul play in the Australian’s death. http://cebudailynews.inquirer.net/77290/2-foreigners-found-dead-another-killed-in-crash

Lars alway wore an open face helmet. His helmet is from Sweden, and complies to all regulations there.

Maybe the alcohol was more prominent factor to Larses death rather than the helmet he was wearing.

OMG. I just spoke with Michael less than a month ago. 

 

Michael Feyerabend was a long time friend of mine. He had lived in Alcoy since 1995. He was also the largest employer in Alcoy, as he built homes for foreigners, predominantly German retirees. 

 

This is his website (in English): http://www.alternativephilippines.de/maineng.htm (root URL for German)

I was and knew them both. Surprised they called Eddie an Australian. Didn't Lars sink the Cessna?
