Wife says Cavite gunman not drug trafficker

By |


BAE HOUSE Gunman Ronald Bae built this house in the remote village of Ascomo in Guagua, Pampanga, last year. What prompted him to live there puzzles neighbors. TONETTE T. OREJAS/INQUIRER CENTRAL LUZON

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO—Ronald Bae, who killed eight people and wounded 12 others in a drug-fueled shooting rampage in Kawit town in Cavite province on Friday, earned his keep from cockfighting and breeding game cocks and not from dealing in illegal drugs, his wife said on Sunday.

While she admitted that her husband used drugs, Elena Bae dismissed reports that Bae traded in “shabu,” or methamphetamine hydrochloride.

“That is false,” Elena, a native of Sta. Cruz in Lubao, Pampanga, said in a telephone interview.

Bae prowled the streets and market in Barangay (village) Tabon I in Kawit and shot anyone in sight with a .45 cal. pistol then shot it out with responding policemen until he was shot dead.

On reports that her husband was a drug user, Elena said he had used drugs two weeks before he died. She said she did not know when her husband started using drugs.

But asked if she knew why her husband went on a rampage, she said, “It’s due to [his] vice.”

In a talk with the Philippine Daily Inquirer on Saturday in Imus town in Cavite, where her husband’s body was taken, Elena said Bae was a good man and father until “he started using drugs recently.”

On Dec. 30, she said, Bae started to act strangely.

“He would talk to himself. Sometimes his eyes would roll upward,” she said.

She added that once she saw Bae talking to a wall in their house in Guagua town, Pampanga.

“He was saying something. ‘I’m the devil,’ he said, and that he was seeing shadows, somebody was peering at him,” Elena said.

Incredible change

Bae and Elena were married five years ago, although they had been living together for 13 years. They have five children, the eldest of whom is 12 years old.

Bae had two other children from a previous marriage.

Elena said she could not believe what happened to her husband. They had fights, she said, and sometimes he hit her. But he never pointed a gun at her.

“They said it was as if he had been possessed, as if he became a demon,” Elena said, referring to people’s accounts of Bae’s deadly rampage.

She said she and her husband had a fight on Dec. 30. He appeared to have been using drugs and his companion, his house caretaker John Paul Lopez also appeared to have taken drugs.

“He was jealous of John Paul. I said, ‘Oh, no, dad,’” Elena said.

Bae started to hit her in the head, she said. When it looked like Bae was going to draw his gun, she collected the children and barricaded themselves in a room and stayed there until Bae and Lopez left.

In the funeral parlor where Bae’s body lay, Elena apologized to the families of the people he had killed. “I apologize for what my husband did. I hope they are not angry with me,” she said.

In her interview with the Inquirer on Saturday, Elena denied that Bae snapped because she had decided to leave him.

“It was he who left the house. In fact, I looked for him to put him in rehabilitation. But his friends won’t tell me where he was,” she said.

Cock breeder

Elena said Bae bred fighting cocks on a farm in Noveleta town, Cavite.

“He stopped this business when he ran for barangay captain [in Tabon I in 2010] but lost,” she said.

She said they built a house on a 500-square-meter property in Guagua last year.

The house, towering over ricefields owned by neighbors,  remains unpainted. It has a rooftop where people saw Bae frequently binge drinking with friends.

He went on a deadly rampage the next morning, with Lopez seen loading his pistol for him.

Police reorganization

Relatives surrendered Lopez to police in Imus late Friday. He is facing multiple-murder charges for helping Bae shoot people by reloading his gun.

Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. on Sunday blamed the carnage in Kawit on the regional police commander’s “unilateral” decision to reorganize the Cavite police.

Revilla, who is from Cavite, said the “arbitrary” reorganization ordered by Chief Supt. James Melad, police director for the Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Aurora, Quezon) region, led to the “relief and replacement” of the provincial police director and all chiefs of police in the province.

Melad’s order, Revilla said, made it difficult for new cops assigned to the area to respond quickly and subdue Bae.

Bae, a former member of the Barangay Tabon I council in Kawit, was believed to be high on a cocktail of drugs and liquor when he rampaged through his neighborhood on Friday morning. He had shot dead eight people, including two children, and wounded 12 others when police arrived and killed him in an exchange of gunfire.

“The new officers Melad assigned to the province knew nothing and were unfamiliar with places there. That’s obvious in their response to the emergency,” Revilla said in a statement written.

Slow response

Revilla noted reports that responding police officers took between 30 minutes to an hour to get to Barangay Talon I after frantic calls about Bae’s shooting spree.

He said witnesses “also noted the incompetence of the responders, saying that after arriving late on the scene, it was apparent they had no training as they all appeared to be confused.”

“There was no ground commander, there was no control of the area, and no evacuation area was established for the victims and those wounded,” Revilla said.

Earlier reports said Melad relieved Chief Insp. Joel Saliba and his deputy, Insp. Henry Salazar, for the delayed police response.

But Revilla said Melad himself was accountable for what happened in Tabon.

“After the senseless deaths … caused by his ineptitude, Melad is stepping into the scene to wash his hands,” Revilla said.  “He has to take responsibility for what he has done. He has blood on his hands.”

For elections

Melad said the reorganization was part of preparations for May’s midterm elections. The Philippine National Police leadership ordered the reorganization to ensure peaceful and orderly elections, the first under President Aquino’s administration.

The provincial police chief, Senior Supt. Alexander Rafael, defended the police action amid criticism of his men’s slow response.

“We could not have controlled whatever it was going on in his head,” Rafael said, referring to Bae. “Even if it was the former provincial director or anybody in my position, it’s out of anyone’s control.”

Rafael was reacting to criticism from Cavite Gov. Juanito Victor Remulla, who had said the carnage could have been prevented had the police responded to reports that Bae had been indiscriminately firing his gun days earlier.

But Rafael, who took over as provincial police commander last November, said there were no such reports, and that the police was “doing everything” to curtail drug use and the proliferation of firearms in Cavite.

“The governor was telling this morning that the area wasn’t cordoned off, but maybe he arrived at the scene the [forensic investigation] was done,” Rafael said.

“We are also not just talking about a single crime scene here,” he added.

“And wasn’t the fact that our police were able to neutralize the suspect good [enough]?” Rafael said, refusing to admit lapses in the police response.

Bae’s car found

Meanwhile, the car that Bae and Lopez used to drive to Cavite from Guagua in Pampanga was recovered on Sunday morning in Silang, also in Cavite.

Senior Supt. Dionisio Borromeo, deputy provincial police director for administration, said the car, a blue 1998 model Mitsubishi Lancer with Plate No. WFX-975, was important to the investigation.

“We had been looking for this car because there was a car key recovered from Bae’s clothes but there was no vehicle in the crime scene,” Borromeo said.

The car was found abandoned across from a shopping center in Barangay Tabuan I in Silang after town police received reports from residents about the vehicle.

The car was locked. Its rear windshield was smashed. With reports from Cathy C. Yamsuan in Manila and Maricar Cinco, Inquirer Southern Luzon

    Epal na naman tong mga pulitiko…sinisisi ang PNP para mapagtakpan ang proteksyon nila sa droga.

  • catmanjohn

    Bae and Revilla look like basturd brothers.

  • tra6Gpeche

    Drugs, Drugs, Drugs! This is another pest everywhere in and
    out of the Philippines.
    There was no illegal drug in the 1950s or 1960s in the Philippines
    that I know of. But there are always “maton” or
    “siga-siga.” You can see them drinking in the corner of the streets
    or on the streets with his buddies. This is seen by the younger Filipinos as
    they grow-up. Sooner or later, these young Filipinos, when they become adults,
    become tough guy or “siga-siga” too. These “siga-siga”
    Filipinos, like the Cavite gunman
    & others, transform into monsters when they use illegal drugs. They kill,
    rape, steal and enter any house and rob the owner of their important possession. Just
    like in my barrio in Tanauan, Batangas where illegal drugs are habitually & knowingly used
    by some young Filipinos. Where are the police and authorities that are supposed
    to protect the peace and safety of their constituents? Where is the Mayor of
    this town in Kawit and Tanauan? Are they busy making their family filthy rich?
    Shame, shame, shame on this kind of elected officials!

    alam naman po natin na the carnage could have been prevented kung “talagang ginagampanan” ng mga pulitiko at kapulisan ang kanilang trabaho. ang kaso ang inuuna ay porma at pangungurakot, at pagyamanin ang kanilang mga bulsa at pamilya. sigurado yung mga fans, at  mangmang na botante ay iboboto sa susunod yung mga anak o kaanak ng mga pulitikong ito. sino man sila , etc.,  pare-pareho lang sila…walang itulak kabigin. kapag tapos na ang issue, ay doon pumapapel itong mga ito for pogi points at sasang-ayunan naman ng mga fans at iresponsableng media

  • Rovingmoron

    Yan ang katangahan ng mga pulis sa atin. Di ba pwedeng barilin kung nakikita nilang namamaril ang isang tao sa mga inosenting civilians? Self-explanatory na yan just to protect the civilians,any armed cop on the scene would have done just the same, shoot the suspect on site to stop the carnage. No questions asked.

    Revilla should know better! it’s so unfair and stupid of him to blame the reorganization of the Police Department. There are obvious good reasons why a Chief would want to shuffle his department. this is no longer a movie, this is reality!

    Instead of demoralizing the Police, why don’t you think of ways to improve gun control, especially in Cavite?

    He should also blame his dad Revilla Sr. Agimat is the one who authored the bill to lessen the punishment for illegal gun possesion from life imprisonment to just 7 years, which can also be shorten by showing goood behavior. Kaya nga nakalaya kagad si Robin Padilla. Ayusin nya muna problema ng mga kapatid nya na nagpapatayan dahil sa allowance ng tatay nya. He should realize he is part of problem.

    Sack all the police officers who did not lift a finger to help the victims of this massacre of the innocents or better yet assign them all in Basilan or Sulu. These f–kg policemen don’t deserve to wear a uniform except that orange colored one with a large “P” on the back and a serial number(?) in front. Let’s all watch how the PNP hierarchy will handle these case and if the corrupt politicians there will do something about the proliferation of drugs in their area. Narco-politics na yata ang namamayani sa mga maraming bayan dito sa Pinas ala-Mexico and Colombia kaya ayan kelangang marami pang mamatay na mga inosente at mapansin pa ng buong bansa ang mga anomalya dito bago magsikilos ang mga “magagaling” na mga lider pulitiko sa napakamalas na probinsyang ito ng Cavite. Marami din kasing mga political dynasties sa probinsyang ito, kaya eto,  another massacre of the innocents.

    • batangpaslit

      na latigo silang lahat…

  • akongednamzug

    Ang mga sintomas na ipinakita ni Bae bago namaril, ay sintomas ng isang taong matagal ng gumagamit ng shabu. Hindi kailan lang, gaya ng sinasabi ng kanyang kabiyak.

    • AngLagay

      Baka naman pati iyong kabit este kabiyak ay user din??? Bae is well known and former residence of Calsadang Bago, Imus, Cavite. Very popular sa mga pulis at PDE, kasi palabigasan at piggy bank nila si Bae. 
      Huhulihin then pakakawalan after na maglagay/magbayad ng “service fee” Matagal na iyang professional dealer and user at the same time. Dapat ang mga reporter ay mag background inquiry muna sa mga dating kapitbahay niyan sa Imus, bago magsulat at mag-publish ng kanilang report. Maraming kulang at mali sa mga balitang nalathala na.

      Isang opinion writer lang sa ngayon ang nasa tamang derection sa tunay na pagkatao ni Bae. Mga kababayan, read the opinion of Marichue V of Philstar.

  • WeAry_Bat

    I really heard and a few times read, that there is a reason why drugs are strong in Cavite, by a large political family.

    • batangpaslit

      is it the ruling family
      or
      one of the political family in the area?

      • WeAry_Bat

        you should ask those living in cavite…it is such a given problem for them after all these years that outsiders are surprised to learn what is known by them.

        kung hindi drug-related rape-murder, eh drug-related gun massacre. 

        hintay hintay na lang kung sino ang sunod masiraan ng ulo sa drugs at pumatay ng tao dun.  sa economics pa, hindi sustainable business ang illegal drugs industry.  napapatay o aalis ang mga tao.

        Allan, my point is to refute the false notion of Noonyan that a lowly taga pag alaga lang ng manok—manok pang sabong—ay pobre.
        On the contrary they make lots of money if they are handling big time cockfighting afficionado.
        I am pointing out that Noonyan is clueless that a taga pag alaga ng manok na pang sabong manok can strike rich, big time; hence, I used those illustrations that I have personal knowledge of.
        I am not merely speaking under my nose.
        I am not into cockfighting. But, objectively speaking there is money definitively in sabong.
        But not all the time, of course. One would make hundreds of thousands today, but, might lose his shirt tomorrow.

  • Guest

    Hindi lang ang chief of police ng Kawit, Cavite ang dapat sinibak sa puwesto. Dapat yung CALABARZON PNP chief, si Chief Supt. James Melad.

  • barry p

    “After the senseless deaths … caused by his ineptitude, Melad is stepping into the scene to wash his hands,” Revilla said.”

    Masyado namang PILIT NA PILIT ito.

    Maaring may negligence on the part of the police (like for the alleged slow response, etc) BUT to say that the deaths were CAUSED by the police, and not the gunman, is over the top.

    AND so what kung may reorganization?  It’s only the chiefs who’re rotated and NOT the policeman who do the beat.  

    Systems, rules, procedures, guielines, etc. ang nagpapatakbo sa operation ng Police.

    Hindi dapat nakasalalay sa individual na personalidad / hepe ang pagpapatakbo ng trabaho ng kapulisan.   

    So reorganization should have nothing to do with the incident.

    Again, pilit na pilit.

    What Sen Revilla said about having control and evacuations, etc, are ideal.  But again you have to consider the turn of events…yung spontaneity ng mga pangyayari.  Was there time?  EH kung nangyari ang lahat sa loob ng ilang minuto aba eh …again masyadong pilit na pilit yung finger-pointing.

    INSTEAD OF DIPPING HIS FINGERS ON THE PERSONNEL AFFAIRS OF THE PNP…Sen Revilla will do better in encouraging the PNP revisit its operation manual on crisis response and train hard on it.

    Huwag nang mag-ala trapo.

  • Komen To

    The usual politicking is showing up again. While it maybe true that the cops are late, the scene of the crime was so huge to control the situation immediately. People running left and right away from the gunman, maybe even towards the cops, or some behind the gunman, make the situation very difficult to avoid collateral damages. The truth is most of our cops have no sufficient training on this situation. Why can’t the senator and the governor allocate some of their pork barrels for police training?

  • sakinlang

Alam naman ng lahat ng taga Cavite kung gaano ka talamak ang bentahan ng droga at gaano karami ang loose firearm diyan mula pa sa kapanahunan ng matandang Remulla at ni Revilla bilang gobernador. Mantakin mo, kahit na gaano kaliit ang okasyon diyan di mawawalan ng magpapaputok ng baril. Kaya kayo ang dapat na sisihin ng mga taga Tabon I.

    Kumag talaga itong si Revilla, lahat gagawin para magka pogi points para sa election ngayong taon. Maraming na ngang napinsala sa nangyari naisip pa niyang gamitin ang situwasyon sa kanyanag pamumulitika at kapakanan.

    tama si revilla ang mga kapulisan ang may kasalanan nyan di kasi sila nanghingi ng anting anting sa tatay nya e ang tagal tagal na nilang hawak ang cavite.  sa susunod kasi si revilla ang iharap nila sa mga sira-ulo para sya ang sumalo ng mga bala.

    Idiotic Revilla…!

    Why not PROVIDE funds for PNP/Tanod Training in your home province ?

    You have the PROK BARREL, ibinubulsa mo lang naman !

    Revilla, don’t blame the PNP, but Blame YOURSELF for the proliferation of Drugs & Guns in your home province !!

    Forward Philippines !!!

    Habang hindi nawawala ang sobrang palakasan ay di maaalis ang droga o krimen sa Pilipinas dahil pag ang nagkasala ay malakas sa Barangay Captain o Mayor o Congressman o Governor, wala na ang kaso.  Tulad nitong si Bae, nahuli na ng PDEA at may mga baril pa,anong nangyari sa kaso, wala?  Nakapagpagawa ng malaking bahay pero walang trabaho kundi magsabong, saan kinukuha ang pera?

    Droga malamang ang puno’t-dulo ng masaker na nangyari… Dahil sa lakas ng bentahan ng droga ay madali rin nakakabili ng mga baril… Sa isang banda ay panggising na rin sa mga local government unit at ating mga kapulisan ang ganitong pangyayari…

    Lagi kong nababasa sa mga news items  sa  patayan  na  ito  sa Cavite  na  sinasabi  ng mga pulis  Cavite pati na yang provincial commander na si Rafael na wala daw reports ng indiscriminate firing  noong Jan. 2. .Dapat po ang mga pulis ay lumalapit at nakikipag usap sa mga barangay officials at sa mga tao para malaman  ang mga problema nila. .  HWAG  KAYONG  MAG ANTAY  LANG  SA  OPISINA NYO  . . . .

    Kups talaga tong si Bong Revilla.  He isn’t only an idiot.  He has the cheek to politicize the death of 12 townmates.  Porket tinggal lang sa posisyon mga bata nya…

    Bong Revilla.  Please form a club with Tito Sotto, Lito Lapid, Bong Marcos, JPE, Miriam and Joker.  The clowns of the senate.
