A horrible thing happened with my husband's relative!!!

Philippines
October 24, 2008 2:37pm CST
We received a news from hubby's relatives in the province that they were robbed and the wife was killed by the robbers. I am just wondering why it happened? they are not that rich to be robbed? They in fact live in the country and just a mere farmers? Why people are so crazy doing that? I don;t think they have plenty of gold in their house that the robbers would be attracted to, and why killed the old woman? the one who was killed was an old woman. People in the world now are so Satanic. I just hope the authorities would be able to solve this problem.

I feel for you and your family at this time of great loss. Your husband's relative must be devastated. We can never know why bad things happen to good people. Young or old. Woman or man. We must however, always do what we can to protect our home from intruders. I have heard in the past of similar circumstances resulting from home invasions. People are crazy for doing that. Was it intentional or did the robber panick? I hope too that the authorities are able to solve this problem. Perhaps then we can learn what happened and why it went so terribly wrong.

I am just wondering why people are doing that to them? they are not rich or have lots of appliances that the robbers could get? they are just mere farmers.. and why killed the old woman? Maybe, she was killed because she identified the culprits. This what most robbers do to their victims when they are identified by them. They will decide to kill.javascript:__doPostBack('ctl00$cphMainContent$lbStart','')

Sorry to hear about what happened to your relative. It is sad to say that people are taking desparate measures because of what is happening with the economy. I am sure the robbers had no idea what was in their home, a thief goes after whatever they can get. Tbere have been two armed robberies on the street I live on, which has alway been a safe and quiet area. People are just so desparate and are thinking only about themselves surviving, and seem not to care about who they hurt in the process. Again, sorry about your loss.

Well, sometimes, there are reasons why people acted that way. She was killed with that very little amount $5 which the man wanted but she did not give so, she was killed.

That is very sad that some people really hold so dearly the value of certain things and not realize they may pay a bigger price.

Matthew 24:12 (New Century Version)"There will be more and more evil in the world, so most people will stop showing their love for each other." Sorry to hear that sad news. My condolences! The Scripture above foretold that increasing evil and crime would be a sign that soon God's kingdom would be established. Please, when you have time read the whole chapter Matthew 24, it will help you understand better the wicked times we are experiencing. And that very soon relief will come.

That's a great habit, keep at it! 1 John 5:19 (New International Version) "We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one." Till God steps in to intervene and set up His kingdom, the world can only go from bad to worse. But we can continue to live in hope of better times.

WEll, it's my hubby's relative,, she was killed because the man who rob her was also angry with her. It's not a big amount that cost her life. Just $5 or equivalent to P200 in Philippine money.. very sad.

sad to hear this and i hope those responsible would be arrested soon or face retribution for what they did. these people have no regards for human lifes and is not fit to live. they should be severly punish for bringing misery and suffering to others. they deserve no mercy and whatever excuse they have are not acceptable and good enough in my opinion. robbing someone is bad enough and to hurt and kill someone is a beastly act, esp when the other party is a helpless old lady. they should be charged for murder instead of robbery with hurt. that will give them the more severe punishment.

Well, robbery with homicide I think is the charge. Yup, poor old lady she was killed for just $5 US money equivalent which is P200 in the Philippines. That is the amount that cost her life.

That's horrible! I'm really sorry to hear your husband's distraught relative. Even though they are poor but they cannot kill someone innocent. Lots of people have become bad and envy, they want to take anything they want by force because they feel they have the right to take the victim's belongings. It's just sad...really sad but I hope those robbers will be caught and brought to justice.

I think the killer was so desperate at that time because he really need money. He killed the woman just for P200 and that is equivalent to $5 in US money.. Horrible thing.javascript:__doPostBack('ctl00$cphMainContent$lbStart','')

Just because you are not rich does not mean you are safe from being robbed. Many desperate crazy people will do anything just for a little money. Or other things of value. Its a sad sad world we are living in. You always have to live your life looking over your shoulder.

yes, the man maybe becomes crazy because of crisis. He was a laborer who work for the lady and he was not paid according to what he suppose to get, and that's the root of the killing.

Well, the lady really identified her killer. He was the man who work for her but she did not pay her the whole amount that she should pay him as his labor.. so she was killed by the laborer, that was the latest update I heard.

Hi celestial052505, i am sorry to hear that bad news that happened to your husband's relatives. I think those robbers maybe have the intention of killing them just in case they regconise their faces and it will be easier for the police to nab them. Theres robbers are really heartless, they have gotten what they wanted which is money, and why cant they just let them live. they are so bad and they definitely need to be punished by law for what they did.

Well according to y latest update, it is not solely robbing is the reason, It is revenge too, but it is still too cruel to kill an old lady.

Nowdays bad people are eveyrwhere, they robbed people even they are poor as long as they can get what they want like foods, clothes and some appliances which they can use and new to them,. I can say that those people are natives and bandidos who are living in the mountains. Those cases happened to my grandparents before they were lucky that no one was killed, they just took all the things they got inside the hosue and even the trouser of my auncle which he was wore was taken away. They take the rice, the radio, and everything that they can carry. The police officer that time was my auncle,my mothere's relatives but he didn't responded to the actual roberry, they just responded early int he morning where the bandidos are gone and fled. So all we need now is to be careful and put security lock in our house. Happy posting.

I think you are right!! but i have no update yet about who are the robbers are. It might be that they are natives. I did not hear that they have enemies among the natives in their area. yes, now a days, people are just cruel. They even killed just to get want they want. This world is now filled with bad elements. No matter how we locked our doors, they can get in. The authorities also are very slow in their response. I just hope they would be able to solve this case.
